There are precious moments on trail where your mind just spins and spins until it starts creating the silliest scenes and imaginative conversations – with friends or strangers and the strangest ideas come forth. This blog is a close second, but the ideas I came across were wild, borderline manic. Some moments, I would be on a tear, thinking about all the different things I could accomplish when I got back to the city. Write a book. Start a business. Big, lofty goals, seemed easy or attainable. This was another symptom of the PCT mind (for me, but I’ve seen/heard other hikers go through this). Sometimes, I would create comedic parodies satirizing every label possible. Many might be offended if I documented what I thought. Maybe someday I’ll find the right timing to use some of it. Other mental conversations or images were just crazy. At the time, when I saw this small box of “Trail Guides”, and acknowledged it was empty, I thought, what if someone came across this and they needed it? “Whoo, they’re *really* out of luck!” After walking over 800 miles in almost every trail condition possible, this was the funniest thing, ever.
