Hi gang,

Trouble is back in town.....the girls are dancing in the streets the 
guys are gnashing

their teeth.

Like some of you PCT fanatics probably already know, a 26 year old 
Belgian Dentist

marathon runner by the name Karel Sabbe, who in the last 2 years has run 
close to

8,000 KM in 31 countries,  set a new PCT speed record of 52 days, 8 hrs, 
25 minutes.

It should be noted that Karel did it as a marathon runner, with a 
support team, VS

traditional backpacking where you carry all your gear and food, etc.

Hats of to Karel, the new PCT sped record holder and his accomplishment.

All records, sooner or later get broken.

However, in my book, my buddy Scott Williamson still is, and probably 
always will be

the undeniable, the unquestionable, and indisputable "King of the PCT" 
and his PCT

accomplishments probably will never be equaled.

"LONG LIVE THE KING" and may you have many offsprings to carry on your 

And also long live Switchback, the undeniable, the unquestionable, and 

"Rascal" of the PCT...,aka Switchback the trail pirate, who's mischief 
of raiding and

plundering innocent hikers also will never be equaled.

I will not get into what I am famous for.

You can ask...YOGI...she knows.
