We met a man from Hong Kong who went by "Crazy 71". He was 71 years old and hiked the PCT from the Mexican border to where we met him here. He averaged about 10 miles per day in Southern California and about 5 miles per day in the High Sierra. He realized he wasn't going to make it all the way to Canada, but he would go as far as he could and hoped to come back next year. I imagine next year he'll be "Crazy 72". He was raising money on his hike back in Hong Kong for cancer or some other disease.
