A little something about walking sticks for snow:
The snow is very helpful to have ה"כיפה" is at the bottom of the stick, because otherwise the soft snow that makes it meaningless. ה"כיפה" comes along with a stick and to save it to. From experience
I did some aPCT with a big one and it's not bad. But it's better.
And certainly there's room to enter. The libraries have free PC

There is very little about computers, and libraries have quite limited opening hours. And there's a lot of fun, restaurants and on the trail. Highly recommended smart von

I'm a bit late, but better late than ...

I highly recommend that you plan to make the PCT until CASCADE LOCKS SETTING which is the Colombia River on the border between Oregon and Washington which should take four months if you start the kick of. I think that in Colombia also people without time limit.
Advantages in Colombia:
1 this is a finish) natural border-the only River crossing the Cascades range and within the political borders of Canada.
2) Consequently you don't finish route Navi tizzy whispering, but where even you can find public transport to the nearest big-city Portland
3) there are many veterans Bill in Portland, more than any other place I know, so you should have no problem finding a place to stay in Portland while waiting for a flight.
4) saves the logistics of entry into Canada at an unmarked border crossing or repeats tracks and walk back two or three days.
5) the weather in Washington in September not optimal, with rain, fog and snow and even I would appreciate an average year in Washington in September of 10 experience rainy days (more than twice the number of days the average name likely to encounter in the rest of the route in 4 months). In addition, every few years heavy snow in late September so aalchim have to take the lower path bypasses.
6) which is the biggest advantage you will have with the mainstream people, which heightens the experience significantly.
7) I wouldn't recommend you start early in normal snow because the amount of snow in the Sierra will be significantly higher (or more) water caches might not be so early in the season, and you'll be alone most of the way.

The drawback in Colombia: a portion of the trail in upstate Washington really beautiful (as long as no mountains covered with fog, which happens a lot at this time), and the biggest drawback-you do not have a right to all the Isabella wowed for but "only" a long stretch for the apalch.
In my opinion (and I did this for both options) the option of walking to the Colombia River is much more reasonable.

And walking poles are: I a fanatic about walking sticks that are easy on the knees, each Bill is bkimat the most common injury. In a walking Berry PCT, I believe, are the most common injury, because the much more moderate (steep they where hiking poles are kiritis), so that the percentage of moves that make the PCT without rods is the highest of all the paths (this is still a minority) anyway I highly recommend walking poles. If you are divided, I would recommend to buy walking poles are cheap on eBay (you can find a pair of 15-20 $ includes shipping to Israel) and Max leave them aiiker box after you finish the Sierra.

Well folks, my application for a visa was denied.
The PCT will remain just a desire for the future.

Nevertheless, I wanted to say thanks to everyone for your help.

I'm not surprised.
Too bad you have to pay the price for irresponsible youth who discredit and dishonor the name of us all.

So you join India? Shaharellert 41303.8753819444

Rooney soon realized that the time frame I have would be almost impossible to finish all the track really was but you really desire returns.
But unfortunately it turns out that this year I won't be able to travel even two weeks anyway, thanks to all the responders

Hello

For several years I've been waiting to finish your degree and assistance to PCT
Next year God willing it will happen and I want to start planning your trip.
Visa USA already has, buy equipment and I know that there exists a lot of material on the Internet and in the Forum here.
But,
I don't know where to start.
Anyone can give a tip about a book or a website you should read first and then build your trip
Thank you!

I just bought friendly's book through Google pliistor. You can buy it directly on their website with or without a physical copy (digital copy-only for now).
It is very lame and boring, as you would expect. I'm not sure if I would take it if and when I can, but I'm glad I have something to look at in the meantime.
There is also theHalfmile website where you can find full information, complete maps download vest with everything you should do to make the track itself. 41340.5876157407 On
