The kickoff party had many presentations about backcountry skills and PCT safety. This year the PCT desert section is very low on water and there will be 30 mile sections without water resupply!
Speaking of water in the desert, it rained like crazy the second night of the kickoff party and I had to restake my tent at 3 in the morning. Stayed dry otherwise so no big deal.
Taking off tomorrow for much more interesting blog topics.
