Section Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail

Looking for fellow backpackers interested in hiking the Pacific Crest Trail in sections, two or so trips per year over several years, until finished. I'm comfortable hiking 10-12 miles per day, and am looking for trips from two to four weeks in duration. I'll be hiking north starting at the big PCT Kickoff Event at the border in late April up to Warner Hot Springs (about two weeks), then will pick it up again in the summer for another trip (two to four weeks) somewhere along the PCT. Having completed the John Muir Trail this past summer, my own preference is heading north from Toulomne Meadows summer 2011 for a two to four week trip, but would welcome other suggestions. If there is enough interest, I'll organize a meetup.

    I think this is a great opportunity to find hikers to venture out into the unknown. My friend is planning on doing the full trail and taking up to six months. She is having a hard time finding hiking buddies.
