I am reading Lost which is a story of a solo trek of the PCT. INCREDIBLY DIFFICULT--is an understatement. ALONE--grueling physical trek---wilderness---hiking from Mexico to Canada. There is WAY too much personal drama in the book for my taste---HEY I've got my own personal drama, but the sections of the book that focus on the trek---are intriguing. Dirty beyond description----in the company of bears and mountain lions and rattlesnakes----and yet---for some bizarre reason---I started thinking---
"Could I do this?"
What's wrong with me----I should be thinking---"I'm too old to do this"---"I don't like to be that dirty"--"Bears will eat you--snakes will bite you---"Dehydrated Food- YUCK!"
But there is still a part of me that goes---WOW--what an adventure that would be! NEVER said I wasn't slightly crazy!
