I’m only gonna get better....halfway there. Got the entire thing filmed in 4K and gonna take this game to another level when I’m finished and are able to edit on a PC. Got some train stuff on the transcon too, but I’m holding back until the Fall to release it

I was under the impression the PCT was closed this year due to miss rona.

What course are you following?

they closed the PCT due to this shit... wtf....

Isn't the wilderness kinda the definition of social distancing... I mean people can smell their their neighbors farts over fences.... in the wild you can go string a hammock up a tree.


.... the world is retarded.

They closed the trail because most of the communities in the wild are very vulnerable to the virus and do not have hospitals.

Not to mention the rest houses they have where they support the people. Its a nightmare for logistics. People stop in most communities along the trail for supplies. I don't blame em.

Isn’t the PCT part of the National Parks Service? At least sections of it are. I’m pretty sure they (NPS) are open. I assume the Canadian portion will be restricted.

Its not part of the National parks it has quite a few it runs through but as a whole the pct is a loosely based organization.

The communities on the trail requested that people don't come through.

Here is the site where they stated their beliefs. The people who run and operate the trail are purely volunteers.



You can say I'm stupid all you want @Odin .

Doesn't change the situation. My family lives in one of the communities that the pct passes through and they have supported thru hikers for as long as I could remember. My pops has cancer and the closest hospital from their town is 30 miles. So i undoubtedly support theorganizations actions to prevent the plague from spreading further into the mountains. And i respect the decisions of all of the volunteers who are following the guidance of medical professionals and the cdc. To not do so is selfish and frankly irresponsible.

Feel free to go in the wilderness and hang a hammock. Just don't interact with the communities. Good luck packing that many supplies because the post offices are not accepting general delivery for the purpose of a recreational activity.

That's my two cents.

You’re as high as a kite. I’ve been getting hitches left & right...going to grocery stores and post offices left & right...banging locals, fist bumping Sheriff’s deputies who think what I’m doing is badass. quit being a “Karen”.... & I’m not on the PCT

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
