In the spring of 2013, Mike "Hiker Box Special" Henrick "thru-hiked" the length of the trail battling dehydration, wildfires and blisters while experiencing the incredible generosity of the people he met along the way. Come for the incredible photo's and stories he captured along the way and stay for some planning tips for your own PCT adventures.

Plates, bowls, cups, cutlery, napkins and drink pitchers will be supplied. The auditorium has a kitchen if you need to do any re-warming or prep (stovetop, oven, microwave, sink & fridge).
