We very much appreciate the trails we have here in Port Ludlow. Our thanks to the Port Ludlow Trails Committee.
Today, we managed our longest trainer so far. 12.2 miles in just over 4 hours. We came through it pretty well considering we increased our pack loads by 50% to 34-38 pounds.
We are increasing distance and weight to be ready for those 20+ milers we’ll do on the PCT. Endurance is the key!
We aren’t just fair weather hikers either. Above is a view of the Olympic Mountains from the trail and you can see the scudding clouds as the rain dribbled on us during our whole hike
