I stumbled across this vlogger on the PCT right now and he's awesome! His handle on YouTube is Second Chance Hiker. As he says in his description on his channel, he's a man looking for a second chance at life on the Pacific Crest Trail. He's been on the trail since Jan. 30, 2018 and is averaging 2-3 miles a day. His goal is to lose 200 lbs! He is the most positive and inspirational vlogger I've seen. Check him out! If he can complete this journey, that will be amazing. I'll be cheering for him along the way.

Wow. I know a couple of people who lost 100ish on trail, but 200 is kind of mind boggling. Best wishes to him!

He’s everywhere.
He has Groupies.
I wish him all the best.
I don’t think that town Zeros are helping him.

He's hiking something like 8 miles a day which is a bit on the low side. Hopefully he'll be able to increase his daily mileage as the days progress.
