Adventure Speaker Series-Record setting hike of the Pacific Crest Trail, Wed 3/5

Record setting hike of the Pacific Crest Trail. Heather "Anish" Anderson will speak about hiking the entire 2,660+ miles of the PCT in a self-supported manner–carrying her own gear and supplies–in 60 days, 17 hours, 12 minutes. Come hear her tales of desert heat, mountain lion encounters, sleep deprivation, and perseverance; as well as how an overweight teenager became a record setting athlete.

Who: All members and anyone interested in learning more about the Mountaineers are welcome.

What: The Monthly Adventure Speaker Presentation and Potluck. Bring a dish to share, your own plate and flatware. No paper tossing at our potlucks!

Where: Friends Meeting House, 3201 Boston Harbor Road. (From I-5, Plum Street, head north, left side, next to Priest Point Park)

When: The first Wednesday of the Month, September to May (excluding November), at 6:00 PM for a shared potluck and socializing hour, followed by an Outdoor Adventure Presentation at 7:00 PM

Why: Meet your fellow Mountaineers, share ideas, learn about others’ escapades and adventures, and connect with our great community of outdoor enthusiasts. (Librarian Maxine Dunkelman will have a selection of books available for checkout to Mountaineer members. Contact her at [masked] if you have special requests.)

    Very inspiration - entertaining - and motivational. The PCT is on my list now (Thanks Heather) - but will be done in segments over the next 10 years! :) Eagerly awaiting the book.
