Pacific Crest Trail Map

I have had several people over time stop me while I am out hiking (training) and ask about the sign on my back which says "2656 miles." I tell them a brief history about my three cancers and my hiking the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) and on many occasions they have donated cash right on the spot.

This time, a young couple (turned out to be a brother and sister) stopped me and asked about the sign on my back. After telling them my story, he said he wanted to help my cause and asked where I would be hiking for the next hour. He didn't have anything on him, but he was going to go home and get something to donate. He was not talking about cash and he indicated that he was going to set a package behind that pole (he pointed) at the edge of the field.

Yes folks, he was donating MJ to the cause. I refused his kind offer, but told him I would not hesitate to use MJ if I thought it would help.
