Executive Summary

What are you doing?
I’m taking a break from video games to hike to Canada.

How come?
Video games are tiring and I want nice legs.

From Scotland??
No, don’t be ridiculous. From Mexico.

Oh, on that Pacific Coast Trail?
Crest.

The toothpaste?
The Pacific Crest Trail.

Ah. Like Cheryl Strayed in that book Wild?
No.

Like Reese Witherspoon in the movie adaptation of that book Wild?
Yes.

Why though?
Just wanted to be more like Reese Witherspoon but couldn’t get in to Harvard Law.

With other people?
No, Reese never got back to me so I’m going it alone.

But what if you get lost and there’s no-one else around to help you?
I’ll just loudly assert my gender identity and someone will undoubtedly show up to argue with me.

But what if it’s really hard or you get injured or there’s a bear or you run out of money and you cant do it?
Guess I’ll die.

Is there somewhere I can read and follow everything you’re doing?
Yes. It’s here.
