Today was a milestone day. I passed the halfway point of the PCT. As I was standing by the monument, I was happy to have completed such huge portion of an extremely challenging trail, but I was a little sad that Janel wasn’t there to celebrate too. In my eyes, she walked the most challenging portions of the trail and achieved the same level of accomplishment I have. I celebrated by eating an entire box of Reese’s Pieces. Today was also the day I went into Chester. The highway leading into Chester is a 55 mph, two lane road, with very little shoulder. It took an hour to get a ride. Once in town, I went to the post office and then spent pretty much all day eating.
