    I feel for you, the altitude in India almost did me in. Hang tough…

    Do you plan on updating your site to real time? It appears you’re over two weeks behind on entries.

  3. “It’s nice to have my ego stroked in this way. For the last 200 miles I’ve been able to count on southbound JMT-ers to validate my identity as a PCT thru-hiker and make me feel smug. Soon the trails will split again and it’ll just be me, the occasional day hiker, and other PCT thru-hikers- and all of their packs will be at least as small as mine. So I’ve got to get it while I can.”

    loved this.

  4. I have enjoyed reading your posts from the start and I look forward to reading new ones when you post. The symptoms of your altitude sickness sound like what I experienced in 2011 on the High Sierra Trail. It was dehydration. I never had the skull buster headache that often comes with altitude sickness but had an upset stomach, was lethargic and I didn’t always make the best decisions. Water, lots of it and more than I thought I needed really helped. I wish you all the best as you work your way north!
