Thru-Hiking Happy Place: Packing for the PCT

Sitting here, less than 48 hours from starting my northbound thru-hike of the Pacific Crest Trail, it hits me how real this is (I mean, I just shaved my legs for the last time in over 140 days). I don’t have the same type of anxiety and emotions as when I started my first long-distance hike, which was on the Appalachian Trail in 2013. I’m not necessarily nervous; I’m more so remembering what it means to walk for 5 months in the woods, and am anxious to take that first step.

While compact camping gear is designed primarily for the trails, having a complete mobile kitchen that can fit in a small day bag has more benefits than just getting lost in nature. I've been rebuilding my van at a shop on Chile for the last two months and the only food nearby is Pollo Asado and mediocre Chinese food. After a week or so of those two...it got real old, real quick.
