I finished my thru hike at the Canadian Border on the 14.09.2011 just in time before the first winter storms and rain hit Washington. Washington could be my favourite section on the whole trail if there would not be so many of them. One thing for sure, the PCT says good bye not in a silent way. It shows you the beauty of nature and that part of the country till the last minute. I am allready back home but I miss the trail, the friends I made, the hiking, sleeping outside and all the things that made my summer to something special.
I know now what Barney Mann ment when he dropped us off at the Mexican border whith the words “You will have the time of your life out there”.
Thanks to my friends and family, the Manns, the Saufleys, the Andersons, the Hansens, the Dinsmores, Michael and Jean, the Downs, all the thru hikers I met especially Anders and Asger, Dont Panic, Wrongturn, Rainer, Thano, the people who gave us rides to towns an back to the trail, Anitra Kass, Carsten Jost, Laufbursche and the the US Postal Service.
