SUPPORT OUR ADVENTURE
SUPPORT OUR ADVENTURE
This journey will take both physical and mental stamina. It would be impossible to complete without the love and support of our friends and family. Remind us that we aren't (completely) crazy.
Use our schedule to figure out when & where you can come visit us on a Zero Day!
Postcards, letters, notes, candy, brownies...anything* that might brighten our day along the way.
You can look up our next anticipated resupply point on our schedule. Because our schedule is TENTATIVE, please send items no fewer than 2 and no more than 3 weeks before our scheduled arrival date.
*Disclaimer: Due to the calculated nature of this journey, we have very specific weight constraints and dietary needs, and cannot guarantee that we will be able to take your gift with us. We encourage you to think of creative morale boosters which we can carry in our minds (and not on our backs) that will lift our spirits, make us laugh, and remind us that you're thinking of us. RULE OF THUMB: If its large, heavy, or we can't eat it, we won't take it with us.
Believe it or not, hiking the PCT is an expensive endeavor. Between purchasing initial equipment, food, miscellaneous transportation, replacement gear, and the occasional Zero-Day hotel room, an average hiker spends roughly $6,000 to walk the entire trail. Since Chris and Nick are both quitting their jobs for this journey, and Ben is still a full-time student, we are raising money to help us offset some of our costs. We are hoping to raise $6,000 for the three of us ($2,000 each); you can donate at our INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN.
If we raise more money than we need for the trip, we will re-donate it to SIDE BY SIDE, a non-profit organization in Seattle that assists families with seriously ill children. Ben has volunteered with this organization and knows that they are a fantastic cause!
Words will always fail to adequately encapsulate how crucial and essential you are to this journey. It means the world to us that you are cheering us on, anxious to see us succeed. We will literally be unable to finish it without you!
A big thank you to our sponsors! The gear & food discounts mean more than you know; we are certain each item will be far more valuable than the dollar tags suggest. Just so the world knows who you are:
