Although I’ve made some great friends on the PCT, I tend to hike solo. I like planning my own day and enjoy walking alone although I do prefer to camp with others if given a choice. Recently, however, I made a great friend on the trail. Alex, aka Pumps, hiked from Yosemite to Cascade Locks, completing half of the PCT in an effort to raise funds for MS research. We met about 200 miles ago and hit it off right away. We hiked together for almost two weeks and had such a blast together. Thank you Alex for your friendship and support!
