a grand adventure along the PCT

Here's a documentary by two dudes who walked 2653 miles from the US-Mexico border to the US-Canada border along the PCT, i.e., the Pacific Crest Trail. While I wish the narrator's intonation hadn't been so flat and dead, I recalibrated my ears to listen to the content of his story and not the style in which it was told. The amazing images didn't hurt, either. If you don't have 40 minutes to spare, watch the video at 1.5X speed, as I did.

These guys maintained a hiking speed of 16-18 miles per day through mountainous terrain, basically walking from dawn to dusk every day. That's pretty damn impressive.
