"Travis" started May 22 and finished 9-11-08.   He didn't get distracted by Reno or anything.  He was there to do the PCT.

Greetings, this is Todd

I was known as Uberdude for people who did the AT in

I'm graduating from grad school on May 23rd and really
want to do the PCT. I'm afraid that starting the 24th
or 25th of May might be too late to do the PCT as a
thru-hiker. Any thoughts?

I did the AT in 5.75 months which is an average pace I
guess.  I imagine I'll drink a lot less this time and
the trail is graded a lot easier so I imagine I can
get more miles in a day with the same effort.

But I want to find out from the people that might
know.  Can a "normal" PCT thru-hiker make the PCT
starting May 25th?
