TLDR: Fat loser quits; blames passers-by and complete strangers she met along the way for her failure. Because of "toxic" ideas held by the strangers.

Bonus factoid: Crazy fatty "prepared for months" for a 2600+ mile hike... and has to take a rest after 4 miles because her shoes didn't fit correctly... so, apparently, "preparing for months" for a 2600 mile hike didn't actually involve any actual hiking.

You can't make this shit up.

Even then, if she had been preparing for months she likely would not have been fat any longer.

Excellent point. I don't know her, but I suspect preparation of a months worth of hiking and let's be conservative on this, by the end of the month she would be up to hiking at the very least 20-26 miles a day? At 3 MPH for 8 hours this is realistic. I suspect there will be some days you hike longer, some less. But to tackle 2600 miles of the PCT (much of that is in the Sierra which is under snow for some areas as much as six months a year, not to mention the Cascade) that would be 325 miles a month. Hiking for just 20 days a month at that rate would yield 480 a month. We haven't even brought up the wildlife issue. As she would have gotten closer to the Sierra she would have seen mule deer, and where there's deer theres large cats. Also Elk, very territorial elk. Bears. California Bears aren't vicious vindictive bears like a Kodiak but they still can hurt you. So, hiking for five and half months would tackle the entire trail.

One month would effectively be just shy of a fifth of the hike. Just doing the math to really see what would be involved at the lightest. Food drops and animals are a whole new issue I couldn't even begin to comprehend.

"prepared for months"

Means 'posted on facebook about it' for months.

Ahahah, that's probably right. If we're being generous, maybe she also walked around her neighborhood on the nice sidewalks 3 or 4 times a week. If she had worked any harder to prepare, she wouldn't look like such a dumpy mess.

This appears to be a lonely woman craving attention of her peers, and also acting on her need to make others believe that she is virtuous. The irony here is that if she did work hard for this kind of hiking, she'd be in great shape, and men would give her a lot of attention... assuming her attitude isn't awful. But she's a feminist, so....

i.e., virtue signaled about it for months. Now she can virtue signal for life about how toxic masculinity prevented her from completing her big hike.

She learned of it from a documentary that starts with a woman's toenail falling off, and then she goes and does it and complains her shoes don't fit? Oh you poor fat bitch. Why don't you go crime some more tears. How about another twinkie, you stupid bitch?

I've through-hiked literally across entire countries. I've run marathons. My toenail has fallen off. Even if I was as fat as this bitch, I would not go cry about how other people ruined my hike. Get the fuck out of these trails. No one out there gives a shit. We go there to get away from dumb, whiny bitches like you.

holy shit, the delusion is amazing. all the comments are positive...meaning it deltes negative comments.

i mean, youve never hiked before, your out of shape, and tried to do a hike longer than most veterens wouldnt even take. "hey! i like race cars, im gonna get a formula 1 and start racing tomorow!"

"i want to be ripped, so im gonna 700 bench presses in the next few hours"

Im a woman and I backpack, it's difficult but worth it. I did some Appalachian Trail and met so many people, mostly man that is true, but they all were helpful and nice. I never felt I was assaulted as a woman or even felt inferior at any point. There was about 15 people sleeping in a hut, strangers all together. I call bull on this. No one can judge you like mother nature, she is the only thing that reminds you how weak and pathetic you actually are.

Some of the most passionate backpackers I've meet have been women. The difference between them and her is they don't have the mindset that they are inferior to and have to judge themselves against everybody. They're there because they love doing it for themselves, not a blog or other "Hey look at me internet people" reason.

I can't even wrap my mind around how she would get angry and threatened at people starting conversations about traveling on the very trail they're hiking, the biggest thing that she and them share in common at the moment. Or how bout the fact that they want to talk about gear and the tips and tricks they found that make their months long trips better. It's maddening.

I agree, there is always room for improvement. It is a blessing to meet a seasoned backpacker and pick their brains on best trail spots and gear tricks. Plus on a long as trip like that I would not imagine meeting more then 1 or 2 hikers per day at maximum. There were days where I didn't see a living soul for 3 days on a trail, and the people I did see just said hi and moved on.

Haha the article talks about how the long distance hikers have a disdain or something for fat people. It's like no shit, you wont survive a 2400 mile hike being a fat lard #toxicmasculinity.

These people are in inherently toxic in most day to day situations. Imagine this lady when she is tired in pain and thirsty. I do commend that she hiked 5hundo miles but the as soon as it went into the apologetics in the beginning, I was like "ok, what are you going to blame your failure on, oh round one?"

I always forget that when people like her participate in these things, they are looking for a way to co-opt it. In the comments, some legbeard was comparing here experience in the "boating community". It is always about co-opting shit. Luckily this is just a bit too hard.

When someone starts talking about a toxic community, it's a sure sign that they are the toxic one.

Someone tell her about the amazing trail the Death Valley Germans followed and how she must check it out.

News flash, you will occasionally run into a few crazy or rude people on the trail. But the vast, VAST majority of hikers are totally chill. This snowflake also seems to be finding what she is looking for. I've been backpacking for decades, so I'm sorry if I might "mainsplain" when I see you doing some stupid shit. But you know what? I was that rookie once too, but I didn't get sand in my vagina about people helping me.

And discussions about mileage isn't all a competition. It's like talking about the weather. On the trail that's what we talk about. How far you going today? Where did you come from? I'm not competing with you, I'm competing with myself. Other than having some trail small talk and getting to know you a little bit, I could give a shit how many miles you've come or how many you do in a day. I've come across ultra-marathoners on the trail. I can't do that. But if they can it doesn't impact me in the least.

One thing I have noticed in the last decade, the rise of the numbers of women on the trail. And good for them. It used to be they were in the minority. But when we did a loop around Mt Hood a couple years ago, there were more women on the trail than mansplaining bro dudes. And good for them.

But holy shit. I'm glad this one went back to town. She can camp out at Whole Foods.

The problem is, she knew her mileage was shit. She knew whenever she had to say the number out loud, she wasn't going to finish. She knew whenever she had to say, "I've done three miles" (at lunch) that she wasn't going to hack it.

She was competing against herself too. The problem is, every time someone asked her, it reminded her that she was failing against herself.

You nailed that there. Especially if you're going south to north. If you're not knocking out 20 - 25 miles a day, you're going to go through northern tier states in the Winter. And sure, you don't start doing 20 miles a day, but after a few weeks you work up to it. Unless you're eating the same shit that made you a fatass in the first place. I bet if her pack weighed 30 pounds, how much of that was sugar instead of protein/fat you need on the trail? But there I go, man-plaining again.

Nature is not a safe space. Real Nature is one of the least safe spaces there is. As such, it draws types who don't care about your fragile sensibilities.
