Trail Names....

There have been a few....


View Thru Hike PCT on walkinman's travel map.

First and foremost -

LUCKY NALGENE
Got this one because I dropped my Nalgene bottle that I have had for a couple years that went with me to Hawaii, went on all my Lindblad Expeditions to Alaska and Mexico, and is covered in my stickers from Outward Bound to my new Go Pro camera sticker. It has a lot of sentimental value and I dropped it without knowing it. I figured it was lost, but hiked back a mile to look with no luck. Thankfully, Alaska, another thru hiker picked it up and carried it. I got it back and that is why I go by Lucky Nalgene.

ROADWALKER
This one is from me getting off trail and lost a couple times. It happened just past Deep Creek Hot Springs, I got off trail following the wrong stream when the PCT was hard to follow. I was off trail for 2.5 hours and eventually was walking the road to find my way back to where I got lost. Then again after Mt. Baden-Powell some day hikers were coming up and I got distracted and just followed the trail they were on, which was wrong and took me to a road, which I decided to follow until it hit the PCT again rather than hiking back up what I came down.

POOL BOY
At the Saufleys, the clothes I borrowed while doing laundry were some white shorts you picture a guy sailing around the world wearing as well as a Hawaii button down shirt that I left unbuttoned. You can picture why pool boy comes to mind.

HAPPY FARTS
Hehe....well I just happen to laugh at farts a lot. So this one speaks for itself.

TENT STAKE
I somehow left my spoon/fork(not a spork, it was the two separate utensils), but I left my dinner wear at Tehachapi. Going to eat my Ramen that night was tough. I started off using two tent stakes as chop sticks, then switched to one as a shovel. It worked pretty well with peantu butter too.

I forgot to mention..... ROM COM
In Idyllwild I went and saw The Lucky One. Then in Big Bear City I went and saw 5 Year Engagement. Southern called me Rom Com. Romantic Comedy. Yeahhhhh

A new one.....FISHBULB
If anyone is a Simpsons Fan, they will remember the episode where Homer finds the Mr. Sparkle cleaning product from Japan. The image of Homer is made from a fish and a light bulb. Well I got Fishbulb because I tend to look very clean on trail, even after 12 days of no shower. That's where I got that one!

I'll update if I get more. :)
