I've been a camper and bushwalker for over thirty years. But have returned to walking after some years away due to injuries. I'm learning to use lightweight gear and love exploring with the lightest kit possible. I've travelled most of eastern Australia, walking in landscapes as diverse as tropical rainforest, snow fields, beaches and deserts.
Yes, I am still nursing some injuries which are making it hard for me to get a 'hiking fix' at present, so I'd love the opportunity to test this DVD. I've been listening to podcasts on many of the great American walks for some years but there's nothing like seeing it. Although I doubt I'll ever have a chance to do more than vicariously live this dream, this walk still inspires me more than any other I've read about.
So, I'd love the chance to 'walk' this trail from the comfort of my couch while I dream about spending six months in some breathtaking scenery.
If selected, I will:
determine the quality of video on a PAL system rather than NTSC
spend several hours drooling over the scenery
live, laugh and cry with the participants
rate how much this DVD makes me want to take the challenge of walking the PCT
write an outstanding review
