"Far More Than He Seeks:" Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail

3:30 p.m.

To encore his successful 2002 through-hike of the Appalachian Trail, Bill “Tigerpaw” Plonk ’83 again grabbed his ten-pound mesh pack and abandoned his earning potential to hike the 2,660-mile Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada last year. Along the way he lost forty pounds, tore a calf muscle, contracted giardia, slept in cliffside cave, fell in a river (twice), and met rattlesnakes, bears, and, yes, tigers (both real and alumni). Combined with his previous Appalachian Trail hike Bill has hiked more than 4,800 continuous miles of trail. Come share his journey and learn how to do it all yourself. To 4:30 p.m. Robertson Hall Bowl 1.
