Planned section hike – 4/20/2019 depart southern terminus and ending Tehachapi Pass mile 566.  I have split the desert in two.  Last year, was Tehachapi Pass to Horseshoe Meadows.   Now that I know what the driest section of the PCT required, I have made a few gear cuts and replacements.  After three years of section hiking, I think I am down to ultralight for Campo to Tehachapi Pass.
