This schedule was put together from information provided in Yogi’s PCT Guidebook and Craig’s PCT Planner, which are invaluable resources. (Actually, Craig’s plan puts me in Canada about 10 days earlier than my calculations—I’m going with my dates here, and if I speed up as I go, I’ll probably draw even with his).

This is as flexible as a plan can be, so will certainly change to a greater or lesser extent. There are also some “zero days” (days in which I won’t go anywhere) worked in here from time to time. These, too, are highly variable. These are approximate locations: actual towns will vary depending on what is most appealing, easiest to get to, or where any new compatriots may be heading.

This also only covers the northbound section from my house to Canada; I have a plan for the Mexican border back home, but the start date will vary depending on how long it takes to get to the southern monument.

  1. Yo – make sure you consider Callahan’s Lodge when you’re in Ashland ( It’s run by JB’s dad and I think they have some kind of special thing for PCT travelers.

    AND…if it’s interesting and that’s a zero day for you – it might be great place to do some kind of BCNW thing as opposed to Cascade Locks (Though Timberline would be sweet too)

    • I would certainly be interested in checking it out, and I’d love to share my journey. The only tricky bit is the unpredictability of my schedule: I may come in within a week either side of my projected date (ideally earlier rather than later). I’ll have a better idea as I draw closer…

    Good ideas, Toph… except please don’t monopolize Michael’s zero day for all dudes BCNW stuff. The women would like to see him, too. Do you see how this is going to go, Michael? We’re already fighting over you. 🙂

    • Woo hoo! I’m finally popular!

      The good news is, it’ll take me a bit to get through Oregon, and I’d be happy to meet up with folks at any point they wanted to come out. If you fancy a visit to Crater Lake or Timberline Lodge, this is a good excuse. And I’ve got at least a day penciled in for Cascade Locks, which I figure is the closest point to you folks up there.
