I reached 50 miles.

Morning View

The first few miles today went well. As the day wore on, my legs and hips started hurting again and the day got hot. I guess that is to be expected.

A bunnycame to visit me! He came up to about 5 feet of me.

Unfortunately, after 50 miles of hiking on the trail I decided to stop. I’m getting tired of sitting on the ground, drinking pond water, sleeping on the ground, digging catholes and hauling a forty pound pack up and down rough terrain.

So, I’m headed home. Should be there by Friday evening. I’m riding the bus!


  • Robert, we are SO proud of you!!!
    50 miles in 4-5 days is awesome. Your pictures have been fabulous to see. Your journey has enlightened all of us to the beauty of that trail. You did it! You did what you set out to do, and that was to hike the Pacific Crest Trail. And YOU did it, while the rest of us stayed home and didn’t.😂 So proud of you!

  • Wow, Robert, I’m in awe of this adventure you’ve had. 50 miles! I hope your soul was soothed by all you experienced, in every way!
