Mari Erin Roth Sports Editor The Pacific Crest Trail attracts a wide variety of hikers from all over world to the small towns of Quincy, Chester and Belden where they touch along the edges of the trail. Hikers are sent packages with supplies from friends and family to post offices along the way. As a result, during the summer our small town,s can become cultural melting pots. From Little Rock, Arkansas, "Bane" is hiking his third major route at the age of 27. He began the Pacific Crest Trail on April 22 in Campo, Mexico, as many PCT hikers do.

He began attempting long distance trails at the age of 20, "Bane" makes a stop at the Quincy Natural Foods Coop before returning to the trail.

I wasn't sure what he meant exactly by that, but perhaps seeing my puzzlement he followed it up by saying, "I keep going no matter what." The fin'st hike the young Arkansas man attempted was the "Washtenaw" in his home state. The trail follows the Ouachita National Recreational Trail through the rugged Ouachita Mountain range and stretches: 223 miles. The route is known: for its solitude. It took three tries before the hiker could put the first notch on his walking stick. The second destination was the Appalachian Trail. "That was 2,189 miles," said Bane, and he was able to complete it: on his first attempt: "It's funny that the Washtenaw beat me so bad," said Bane. Perhaps his Skill grew with age and experience. The Appalachian Trail winds from Springer Mountain in Georgia to Mount Katahdin in Maine. And that is what ultimately led Bane to Quincy to take on the Pacific Crest Trail as his third hurdle. "Everyone is an extension," said Bane philosophically. "I have pictures of my travels available on Instagram at 'Bane hikes,'" he added. At 27, he has already hiked over 3,600 miles. Wow.
