    Hey guys…….saw your article online @ the WW & thought I would track your journey. I was going through your gear list & I admit I’m impressed with the pack weight. I did a section hike in 2009 Stevens to Snoqualmie followed by the Wonderland, with a pack weight around 24lbs(what I thought was uber light). Enjoy your trip & I don’t recommend taking time off……straight through.

    Hey guys, hope all is well. I was following your hike all summer, and I was sad to see you get off the trail. I was wondering what you thought of your fly creek tent? My husband and I are hiking the PCT this year and have heard mixed reviews of it. Would you use it again? If not, what would be your choice next time? Are you guys planning on finishing next year? Thanks for keeping a blog, it has been useful while planning our hike!

    Hi Crystal, yes we hope to get back on trail and finish it next year. Fly Creek tent was nice, It is small and the zipper will end up failing after some time(most ultralight tent zippers will stop working over time. Ill you have to do is pinch it down a little tighter or buy your tent at REI and simply return it for a new one.) The tent is very small which is the downside but I love that its free standing as a lot of places are too sandy or rocky to really stake it out good. Which you would have to do with a non free standing tent. The other tent we really like is the Siz Moon Designs Lunar Duo, Its very roomy, two doors, two vestibules. The downfalls are, Single wall, non free standing, and you must use your trekking poles for the tent poles.(which need to be adjustable or the correct length). I do no know what we will take next year. We may try out the Lunar Duo as we are simply going to do the north half which has much better dirt for staking out a tent. Thank you for checking out our blog.

    My Brother plans to hike the trail this year (2014). Will the lack of snow effect the safety of water supply, potential forest fires, fun of overall hike? Or will it make for an easier hike overall?
