Hi, I'm Justin "Trauma" Lichter. I am a professional thru-hiker and adventurer who just completed the first winter thru-hike of the Pacific Crest Trail! AMA!
I am Justin "Trauma" Lichter, Trauma being my trail name. I have hiked over 35,000 miles, equal to nearly one and a half times around the Earth. My most recent adventure was the first winter thru-hike of the Pacific Crest Trail /r/PacificCrestTrail. I am here to talk about the hike, the PCT, or just ultrahiking and backpacking in general. Let's get people hiking safely, confidently, and enjoyably!
