Mein erster MYOG Rucksack – Ein IKEA Klassiker

Den Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) 2017, bin ich nicht komplett gegangen, habe es aber auf immerhin genau 3.000 km Wanderdistanz in den 3 Monaten USA Aufenthalt gebracht. Auf dem Trail habe ich mangels Motivation aufgehört über meinen Fortschritt zu berichten. Schande über mein Haupt, aber trotzdem war mir der Genuss in der Natur wichtiger als das Posten im Internet.

Nichtsdestotrotz bin ich nun bereits seit mehr als 3 Monaten wieder zurück in Österreich. Das Leben Outdoor hat seither deutlich abgenommen. Ich bin zurück im Alltag, mit Job und allem was dazugehört… Außerdem sind die Tage nun kalt und kurz.

Grund genug um mich endlich so richtig ins Thema Make Your Own Gear (MYOG) zu vertiefen…

What does one need after finishing the Timberline Trail around Mount Hood? Exactly, a new challenge.

Usually permits to climb Mount Saint Helens are sold out months before and they are limited to 100 per day. But through a lucky coincidence David and myself got two permits which allowed us to summit Mount Saint Helens on the 16. September.

Mt. Hood Timberline Trail – Circumnavigating a Beauty | USA

As I am currently living in South Washington I get a view of Oregons highest peak Mount Hood (3.425m) almost every day. Among the Cascades majestic peaks Mount Hood is one of the most beautiful.

A lot of trails are leading up and down Mount Hoods edges and ridges. Even the Pacific Crest trail passes by. But if you want to explore the full beauty of this mountain you either have to climb it or best just circumnavigate it.
