Staci - I section hiked Oregon last year and fell down a cliff 30 feet the second day. Vitamin I (ibuprofen) was my best friend - every 4 hours when awake, and at night, I had some prescription muscle relaxers left over from tendonitis. I also put my knees over my pack in my tent (pack was crosswise with pad on top of pack) and that helped a lot. So if you have any meds left over from your surgeries, bring them along. You may need them. Invest in a large bottle of vitamin I and divvy them up for your mail drops. Good Luck. Ice packs/cold brew helped a lot on zero days.
Life is an adventure on two feet.

My boyfriend and I are planning on hiking the PCT with our first stop being
independence. Basically we just need a ride from the airport to sequoia
national park. We are taking our flight from New York
on May 12th at 7:50 am and arriving
at 10:38 am in Fresno.
Ohh also I was wondering, this has nothing to do with the transportation, but,
does anyone have advice on what to do to prevent knee pain? I had surgery
on my meniscus twice, I still run and its fine, it just gets sore now and
then. I have a feeling that with this long hike that I need to do a
little extra for it. Should I wear a knee brace? Should I take
certain vitamins? My mom suggested MSM,
but I wanted advice from real hikers :).
