Day 85: We raved! We were raving!

July 19th
Today’s miles: 6
My total mileage: 1109
PCT mile 1290
PCT-Section-N_1290

Belden had a crazy rave going on, and the PCT goes literally through it. We were given free 24 hour wristbands ($200 for attendees!) Crazy photos to come!

Initially, our plan was to leave early today, but Fancy wasn’t feeling well and the rest of us were happy to spend the day loitering on the front porch of the convenience store, getting as many calories as we could. It was weird to leave while the party was still going…but I kinda felt a little like Willard, and it was time to get back on the PT boat and head downstream….

Special thanks to the Braatens for delivering our packages!

  1. Man, I was really hoping I was gonna be in Belden when the Rave was going on. Glad you got to go.

    On the upside, I did get to have dinner with Anish while she was cruising through (and I think that day was over 50 miles too for her)

    1. Belden was a crazy, surreal experience. I’m glad I experienced it, although your own experience of sharing dinner with Anish must have been special! (Assuming she had the energy still to talk.)
      Anish went on to crush the unsupported PCT record, hiking the entire trail in 60 days!

      Also wanted to thank you for your support during my own trek! Appreciate you meeting Mike and I before the trail, and especially your online guide and blog. Your blog was the first that I read. It convinced me that it was doable and it lit a fire beneath me!
