Glen, Grant and Dave traveled to Lake Moreno County park to attend the Annual Day Zero Pacific Trail Kick Off (ADZPCTKO) event this year. As their web site so aptly states:

"The primary focus of the gathering is to help shed those butterflies that inevitably precede a life-altering experience like hiking the PCT by showing you the broad spectrum of strategies that have been successful in the past and those of your fellow 2010 PCTers."

We were there to show our gear and to help support the PCT thru-hiker community. There were a number of great talks and a film show to keep people entertained. As well as the gear contest which was won this year by an ultralight bow fire starter set. You have to see this one to believe it.
