Long-distance hiking on the Pacific Crest Trail

So, I didn't thru-hike the entire trail. Actually, I didn't even manage half of it. I got bored, got off trail, and started hitch-hiking. Since then, I've hitched up the west coast of the US, across half of California, all of Oregon, and again a quarter of Washington. I've met some awesome people, received some kick-downs of food and money (despite my protests), and been shown the kind of kindness and compassion which keeps me traveling in this way.

I suffer for you all...

Laying on a mat in a Bedouin camp by the red sea, I can't help but be envious of all you in cold, wet climates. It's beautiul, hope everyone is having fun wherever they are [or heading].
