Erin "Wired" Saver's presentation on thru hiking the PCT

Erin "Wired" Saver thru hiked the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) last year; the highest snow year on record. She is a solo hiker, who made it through with "No Flips, No Skips." Not easily done last year with high snow, raging waters, and many forest fires. She will discuss what it was like to experience her first thru hike during such an epic season and share stories, photos, and videos from her five months on the trail. Erin's PCT daily blog is one of the most followed in recent years walkingwithwired.com.

For anyone thinking about thru hiking the PCT, she will be answering questions and giving suggestions as to how to prepare and what to expect. If you're interested in learning about some epic hiking in our area and more (including the John Muir Trail), this is the presentation for you. The PCT isn't just for thru hikers. There are plenty of local weekend excursions along the trail that Erin will also present. She looks forward to sharing the trail and spreading the word about one of the most amazing trails in the world.

    This was absolutely inspiring. Thanks to Erin for sharing this adventure. I've crisscrossed parts of the PCT over the last 6 years, but am also from Montana and so am familiar with parts of the Continental Divide trail there... I am sharing Erin's site with my folks who live near Missoula and hope to follow Erin's blog starting this April.

    Greetings Erin, Congratulations on what I am certain was nice step into the divine. AHmmmm.
    I lived in Stehekin for close to five years and out of many mountain communities I have lived in found the Valley and the folks who live here to be the real thing. VERY SPECIAL !
    As the last outpost on your journey NORTH. I am curious as to your experiences coming into and departing Stehekin Please share your experiences if you will.
    I did have the opportunity to gain retrospect as well as insight into many PCT thru Hikers while residing in Stehekin. Lotsa Stories ( mostly true I am sure ) In advance .. Thank you for the reply .

    Gretchen,
    This event is hosted by the Sierra Club at their office and wil have many Sierra members present. With their members and our members it will probably be forty people there.

      Hi Pete, since I just found out that there is room for up to 100, I'd go ahead and open up the space for 40 people. I've heard some other groups are coming too. Sorry for the late notice. I just found out!

      November 13, 2012

  • Gretchen

    If only 15 people made the list and the room holds 40, should those of us on the waiting list assume that we can come? I'm confused.

    November 6, 2012

    • Erin S

      Gretchen, the even is open to the public and it is first come first serve. I just told Pete to limit it so people were aware of the small space. Feel free to come!

      Gretchen, I found out there is room for up to 100, so go ahead an come.

      November 13, 2012

  • Erin S

    Wow! So many on the waitlist! Yes, this is a public event put on by the Sierra Club. The room apparently holds about 40 people. The group size here was limited so people would know about the limited space. Feel free to come, but it is a first come, first serve basis regardless of who signed up. Didn't expect such a great response:)

      Good question Kim. It is way overbooked and I've already done four presentations in the area...I'm willing to do another if anyone has a large space with projector and speakers...

      November 13, 2012

    • Erin S

      Kim, I just heard there is space for up to 100, so hopefully you'll make it!

      November 13, 2012

  • Erin S

    Just heard from the Sierra Club that they could squeeze in about 100 people, so everyone is welcome!
