Training has been muted the last week. A week ago, from Thursday to Saturday, I’d caught some kind of bug that totally wiped me out. From Sund to Thursday of this past week, I’ve been very focused on Chalkboarder.
Seattle is a great town for walking in – very hilly. I’ve put a few miles in the last two days, walking from the International District to Belltown and back.
So this blog not only covers the physical training for thru-hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, it also will cover these topics:
- Trail Research
- Planning the hike by segments
- Networking and spreading the word to gather pledges
- And lightly, the effort to build my business over the next 3.5 years so that I can do this hike and meet my personal financial obligations.
Here at Gnomedex, a gathering of geeks, tech-heads, futurists and social web theorists in Seattle, I’ve been networking for a variety of reasons – for new clients, to gather what leading theorists think the social web will be over the next couple years and to build villages.
Back home tomorrow.. and back to physical training.
