A year ago Steve logged 790 miles before he was turned back in the Sierras by extreme snowpack, ice, and icy creeks which had swollen into impassable rivers for one person to cross without assistance. At the time, Steve was disappointed,_ but knew that he made the right decision for his personal safety. This year, Steve, whose trail name is Special Delivery, has confidence that he will achieve his goal of hiking the entire trail, 2,655 miles from the Mexican border to just inside Cafiada. Steve has spent the last several months planning and preparing for this trip. Thanks to the trail logs of other hikers as well as his own experience of what works and what doesn't work, he has purchased some new equipment, including a lighter weight backpack, and new technology including a smartphone. On the smartphone he has been able to download trail maps that utilize the phone's GPS capabilities. He will also use a Spot Satellite GPS Messenger, which, at the press of a button, sends an email to select family and friends to let them know his exact location. The Spot, which only sends outgoing messages and does not receive, is an invaluable tool to let his loved ones know that he is still on the move. In case of an emergency, he can press a different button which sends a distress message directly to 911 dispatchers and includes his exact location, including latitude and longitude. Even with the smartphone, he will often be out of range for phone service. Steve's trek will start on April 18 with a ride to the trailhead near Campo. He will make his way through the Lagunas, pass Scissors Crossing, and will get as far as Warner Springs by the following weekend. He will then get a ride back to Lake Morena County Park on April 26 to attend the ADZPCTKO (Annual Day Zero Pacific Crest Trail Kickoff 2012). The ADZPCTKO is a weekend event designed primarily for thru-hikers, where they can obtain permits, attend seminars, get up-to-the-minute information on trail conditions, do last-minute equipment checks, have an opportunity to meet fellow hikers, and get plenty of inspiration and guidance from those who've gone before. There will be approximately 600 people attending the ADZPCTKO this year, although some will be past hikers there to share their experience, and others will be future hikers, hoping to" learn more about the trail experience. About 300 hikers are expected to attempt a thru-hike this year. After the weekend event, which will be informative and energizing, Steve will get a ride back to the trail at Warner Springs and continue north. The trail will ultimately pas s through three states (California, Oregon, and Washington), climb nearly 60 major mountain passes (hence the name Pacific Crest Trail), descend into 19 major canyons, and pass more than 1,O00 lakes. It presents the greatest elevation change of any of America's National Scenic Trails, passing through high and low desert, old- growth forest, and alpine country; from scorching desert valleys in Southern California to rainforest in the Pacific Northwest. The PCT traverses three national monuments, seven national parks, 24 national forests, and 33 federally mandated wildernesses. The trail ends in British Columbia's Manning Provincial Park, eight miles past the Canadian border. Steve plans to reach this destination in five and a half months, hiking an average of 20 miles per day. Steve is grateful for the support of his friends and family as he heads off on tllis trip, which is both an adventure and a personal quest. He is especially grateful to Kurt and Petra Boettcher, who will again keep his dog, Sugar Bear, for the duration of his trip. The Julian News will track his progress again this year.
