This might be of interest to some on BW-T.

It came up on BPL that Franco is currently walking the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) with some mates, a picture can be seen at the link below with Franco (second right)

One point I would like to mention is that although the first walk is one of the most popular one section walk of the PCT I did not see ANY rubbish on or around the trails. No rusty cans/tins,bottles, bits of plastic, labels and other bits we see all the time on our trails. The same was true on the other less popular but still well used trail. The exception was the very occasional bit of toilet paper.
