Pacific Crest Trail 2016 Virtual Water Report

New video, updated 3/1/16

For many years the Pacific Crest Trail Water Report has been one of the most useful presentations for hikers attending ADZPCTKO. The organizers of ADZPCTKO are taking a break this year so we have turned to the internet for this virtual Water Report presentation.

Slides used in the presentation can be downloaded as Power Point format here or as PDF format here. (slides updated on 3/11/16).

It’s early in the hiking season and things may change so check back frequently for updates. We plan on doing several live sessions and updated presentations soon.

This is our first virtual Water Report so let us know of any suggestions or questions in the comments below.

Seeing A Google Sign In Box?

Google Sign In

Select the “Sign out and sign in as a different user” link if you see this box.

If you see this Google Sign in box, instead of the Pacific Crest Trail Water Report, click the link at the bottom that says “Sign out and sign in as a different user.” Then, close your web browser window and try again.

Why did this happen?
More than two weeks ago, you (or someone using your computer) signed into a Google account and checked a box that says “Stay signed in.” When this box is checked your computer stays signed into Google for two weeks. More than two weeks has passed and Google requires you to sign back in with your password, even though the PCT Water Report does not normally need one. Enter your Google password or just select the “Sign out and sign in as a different user” link and close your web browser window and try again.
