Darn. Looks like another summer will pass by without my having hiked the West Coast Trail. Tried to get a booking for August, but even calling first thing in the morning on the first day of registration it was already all booked up. Seems people go online at midnight to get their spots. I shouldn't be surprised -- it's considered the best trek on Earth, surpassing even Milford Sound for beauty and adventure. Ah, well. At least I'll save some money; it's not cheap to buy hiking boots, camping supplies, food and pay the trail fee. Now I'll have enough to go skydiving this summer... and I'll make SURE I register in time to go next year!
