    I came to think that seasonings are really key for long distance hikes. Andrew had a small bag of dried red pepper flakes and onion that we treated like gold. He also brought a mixture of olive and coconut oil which worked well- coconut kept it a little more solid but olive was the dominant flavor. Nalgene makes a variety pack of small and tiny bottles which are pretty fun.

      I love the idea of mixing olive & coconut oils — thanks. I added spice packets into my dinners while packing them; I really liked mushroom soup mix and these little chicken stock packets. And parmesan cheese (the scary kraft kind that never goes bad). I picked up some bouillon powder to try adding chicken flavoring this time, but haven’t given it a go yet.

      Did you pre-season and then season on the trail too, or just on the trail?

      • The Laffer curve is valid or invalid depending on exactly what your definition is. If the definition is confined to the idea that the higher the rate of tax, the more effort is put into tax evasion, then that idea is probably valid. (And that’s what I always understood the term to mean.) And the net result might well be that at very high rates of tax, very little revenue will accrue to government.But of course Dr Laffer’s other points (some of them purely political) about the evils of high tax rates are hogwash and Bill rightly points out.

      • Elles me plaisent bien les photos, elles donnent envie de se mettre à table et de déguster ce café gourmand au chaud (même si aujourd’hui il fait plutôt doux).J’en fais très très rarement des cafés gourmands, mais qu’est-ce que c’est bon ! Il faudrait que je me lance parfois !

    Dear Hiker,
    My name is Rachel aka Blackwater. I’m planning on hiking the PCT next year. And I was wondering if you could answer some questions about your hike on the PCT. I totally understand if your busy and don’t have time to do this. We are all busy people and we all have busy lives. But if you do have the time, that would be great. Please just let me know and I’ll email the questions. Thanks for your time.

      Hi Blackwater, That’s great to hear that you’re planning a thru-hike for next year. I wrote up my post-PCT thoughts in a series of “post-trail reports” that you can find on my main PCT page (http://alicehikes.com/pct-014/) — hope that information is helpful to you. Have a wonderful hike!
