Wild Wisdom with Rachel Coffey

What would it take for you to quit your job and follow a dream? What life events would have to take place for you to use the money you saved for a house to walk 2,650 miles in the wilderness instead? Rachel Coffey got in touch with us recently and shared her story to hike the Pacific Crest Trail this spring and summer. Rach will not only be hiking the entire PCT, but she will be filming a feature length documentary in the process. On April 30th, Rachel set off on a 5 month trek that will span the entire length of the United States. But what led her to this decision? We sat down with her to find out…

"Last year I turned my life upside down," says @hiker_rach. "I ended a 7 year relationship and quit my job producing daytime TV. I knew that things needed to change, but when they did, I felt lost. While most of my friends were settling down, my life was moving in the opposite direction. Devastated, I flew to California to solo-hike the JMT. I'd bush-walked in Australia, but never alone. This was a pivotal event in my life. I felt happy for the first time in months. It helped me reclaim my identity and inspired me to aim bigger. Today, April 30, I begin my 2650mi solo-hike of the PCT. Now I know for sure that my life is moving in a different direction, but finally I feel confident that I’m on the right path." ::
