IamA long distance hiker. I've hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2015, Pacific Crest Trail in 2016 and planning on the Continental Divide Trail in 2017. AMA!
I did this ama a few weeks ago but it got deleted due to lack of proof.
I spent four years in the Marines and when I got out I had nothing to do so I decided to hike the AT. After the AT I just worked odd jobs with still no real clue of what I wanted to do. Soon after I decided to hike the PCT. Now that I have 2/3 I figured I'd might as well do the last one
Here is a picture of the three trails if you don't know what they are
Completing all three is called the Triple Crown. Only a few hundred people have ever done it.
Here's a quick video I made of the PCT hike
My blog where I detailed every day of the PCT
