IMGP0013-2Until I get a trail name, my name is Adam. I’m a 46 year old Hydrologist for Six Rivers National Forest. I hail from the Redwood Coast of California. I thought I’d be better off hiking the PCT now, rather that wait until I retire (mid-life crisis?), and I’m very grateful my employer will give me a six month leave of absence.

  1. Ok, I’m all caught up and ready to read about your adventure. And for the record, it is that quiet spot deep inside of you that I have always loved. Happy trails my friend.


  2. This is an awesome thing you are doing, Adam. It will be fun to follow along vicariously. The family and I are hoping to meet up with you somewhere along the trail, I dunno, Yosemite or Tahoe?

    You mentioned a battery for your cell phone and I wondered why no solar cell.


    • Yes! Come meet me in Yosemite or Tahoe (you know my Dad is hiking with me around Tahoe?).

      No solar cell because in the rain forest up north, might not be enough sun to fully charge the gizmo. With the “brick”, I will always have plenty of power.


  3. This is SO cool!! It is truly an inspiration for all of us. One thought I have is to take some homeopathic Rx that I use for “connective tissue” issues- Ruta Graveolens and Rhus tox -for sprains/strains. It’s all I use- had 2 sprained ankles in the last 2 years. Looking fwd to following. At least I want to send you some of my “famous” gluten free ginger snaps. Make sure to post how we can send you stuff to outposts-if that is an option


    • Ruta, Rhus, what? Can you be more specific? Like how much does it weigh, and do I eat it, or what?

      Ginger snaps, yes! I will definitely do a post about how, and where, and when to mail me care packages. Stay tuned.
