recently i decided on a huge goal for myself, and i am REALLY excited about it. i plan on hiking the pacific crest trail. its a 2,500 mile hike from the border of mexico to the border of canada. my goal is to prepare for it this year and begin next april. it takes about 5 months to thruhike and i couldn't be more excited about doing it.

i know its going to be one of (if not the hardest) things i do in my life, but i think it will be so life changing and worth it that i cannot wait.

i've been reading and researching about it nonstop and i know a nice handknit balaclava will come in handy during the cold nights and snowy days :)

i know i have a year to prepare, but hopefully as i get things more in order i can report back and really make this trip a reality.
