A 2016 Pacific Crest Trail Thru-Hike in 4 Minutes! (MUST WATCH!)

Four minutes of your time will be well spent.

Simply put, I was waiting to live. Young, capable, and free to pursue my own American Dream I decided to walk into a more deliberate life.

On April Fool's Day 2016 (age 26) I quit my engineering job in my home state of Ohio, drove to San Diego, and sold my car when I got there. For the six months that followed, I hiked 2,650 continuous miles between the U.S. border of Mexico and the U.S. border of Canada along the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT).

This video mostly contains 2 second clips of my thru-hike of the PCT in chronological order.

My blog covering my thru-hike is posted on notwaitingtolive.com. The site also has my blog of a cycling trip across the U.S. and my blog of my current project, converting a 2017 Ford Transit van into a tiny mobile home (which is all a part of my bigger vision, the "Million Dollar Mountain").
