- Jennifer AKA Starburst / YouTube Vlogger that inspired me to do this trip with Chantal
- Chantal watched a YouTube video with me. We watched the full 12min’s of this Youtube Video that covers from the Mexican Border to Lake Morena that covers 20 miles. After the video, she said that she could do the PCT and she thought that video was the entire 2,650-mile hike. When I told her it was only day 1 of about 5 months we laughed and laughed. As the video played we talked about the trail as it played before us. So funny.
