Switchback the Trail Pirate replies:  Yes, I plan on doing the PCT Most Supported record as soon as someone donates the money --- maybe about $50,000.  I will have lama and other hoof support the whole way.  I will carry my Zpack Arc Blast pack, but only with personal snacks, etc.  I figure about 5 pounds at the most.  On the trail each night I will have my hammock readied and food prepared by wranglers.  My trailtown stays will include the finest accommodations, pedicures, spas, and dinners with wine.  Should be a super vacation trip with minimal effort on my part.  I will laugh at the other backpackers on the trail struggling everyday against Mother Nature and eating backpacker foods.  I will welcome bad weather and the increased suffering of others on the trail.  I will enjoy the walk!
