This video shows the first 100 miles of my 2006 southbound PCT hike. Due to complicated logistics, I had to cover the first 70 snowfilled miles in 48 hours and meet Maiu, who was from Estonia and couldn't get a visa to Canada, at Rainy Pass. She would then hike the rest of the PCT with me, all 2,600 miles.
To cover 70 miles in snow in less than 48 hours, I did NOT take a shelter (no tarp) and a sleeping bag. I took only ready to eat food (no cooked food) and a few clothes. I would move from 2am to 10pm, sleeping only 4 hrs a night. It was rough, but fun. The video also shows a bit of the hiking with Maiu. It was easy for us for 30 miles (50 km) and then we encountered snow (which is when the video ends).
