This video includes training tips, and then tips for success on a long-distance hike such as the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT). Even though the video addresses older hikers, younger hikers might find some value in the ideas expressed. Flash and Griz completed 2005 miles on the PCT during 2022. They are planning to finish their hike this summer. I recently wrote a poem to help motivate older hikers: https://youtu.be/kAxbc2HsYRE
