I slept so well oh my god I’ve done it.. Whoop whoop yes I’ve Completed the PCT
I still can’t believe what I have achieved from the chubby chap with the enormous pack to the slim bloke with a big pack of today
I lay in my tent not really knowing what to do.
Well let’s start with tea. bugger my water bladder had leaked in the night ,Due to me not putting the lid on properly so a quick mop up then tea
I then emerged into a warm Canadian sun and began to pack up other hikers were doing the same
Then Da-vinchi appeared and I drank more tea with him before Foxxy emerged
It was weird and sad saying goodbye to my new friends. But I wasn’t quite finished I still needed to get to manning Park. So after several lengthy goodbye hugs I hoisted my pack onto my back and strolled off down the trail. Crossed my first bridge then battled through an assault course of a trail,
Not sure why but I began to fly down the trail and in three hours was standing at the highway
I turned right and walked to the lodge I was at Manning Park
Fingers crossed my packages were there. Yes YES YES WHOOP and there was Early Bee fantastic
I booked in at the hostel and Early Bees Brother in law carried my large box for me.
I opened the boxes and thought Christ how am I getting all of this home I packed and unpacked till at last my pack was in its transporter
Now hopefully the rest will fit in my other pack and fingers crossed I can get it on as hand luggage
Job accomplished I jumped into the shower then attacked my beard with some scissors before attempting to use a razor wow what a handsome chap
Next I went to see if I could sort my flight. The nice receptionist let me use her phone but I felt embarrassed as I was on hold for 30 minutes. But hurrah flight done bit expensive but I’m going home
Dinner and a beer next. I joined early bee and his family and had two meals as I was ravenous. As we ate, a stream of other hikers arrived Bowie. Mr President. Brunch etc
I finished up and went to the lodge to email and do Fb and book my greyhound bus ride to Vancouver in the morning
Phew soon be home.
I fancied a couple of beers but the shop was now shut so I wandered back to my room.
I was too excited to sleep so I sat in the lounge and flicked through the TV, watched some of the cycling and had a coffee followed by a hot chocolate before hitting the sack
