A new adventure is about to begin.


On April 28th, 2015, Will Schmitt (trail name Jungle Jym) will dig his toes into the soil along the Mexico and California border and embark upon a 2,660 mile hike to Canada along the Pacific Crest Trail.

After his thru hike of the Appalachian Trail, he enjoyed hearing from people who were inspired by his trip, some of whom expressed a wish that they could have helped him along the way.

The goal of this site is to share the day to day unfolding of this new adventure and to provide those interested in helping the hike an opportunity to do so.

Thank you for visiting, here is a free music album to enjoy:
