I'm hiking the Pacific Crest Trail from Canada to Mexico!
I will be documenting my journey of self-exploration through:
- Taking one Polaroid photo every day on the trail
- Writing a haiku each day on the back of the photo
- Compiling them into a book to share with you
Why, you ask?
This year, I made the resolution to live relentlessly -- To push myself farther than I have in the past, to refuse to accept complacency as a norm, and to focus introspectively - identifying and working on the neglected parts of my soul and appreciating the parts that are already shining. The miles ahead me will provide the time I need to reflect on my past, and adapt my mind for what's to come.
By writing a haiku every day on a photo every day, I will document my thoughts and reflections, and will be able to see my own transformation. To the right, you will see several ways you can pledge your support to be a part of this journey! This adventure would not be possible without your support.
Risks and challenges
This project has a couple key risks:
1. I could die.
2. I could become seriously injured.
3. I could miss my deadline to finish the photo book and poster. However, after the trail, I won't be employed. I'll have plenty of time to get everything in line while I'm readjusting to society.
While there are many risks of doing a 2,600-ish mile hike, none of them (aside from #1 and #2) will have an effect on my dedication to completing the project. If I die, I'm sorry. If I become seriously injured, unless I become completely incapacitated, I'll finish the trail.
