Continuing a tradition they started in 2003, the Class of 2002 (represented by Linda "Gottago" Jeffers, John "Cupcake" Brennan, and Jackie "Yogi" McDonnell) gives a custom bandana to everyone who attends the Kick Off. In addition to the myriad usual uses for a bandana, these are a unique hitchhiking sign and navigation aid, and provide an at-a-glance response to incredulous folks who ask "What's the PCT?" These are collector's items folks!
The Class of 2002 will be handing out the bandanas at the Kick Off. Pick yours up at the campsite with the Class of 2002 banner (site 42). Gottago, Cupcake, and Andrea "Just Sit" Henninger will also circulate throughout the campground to be sure each 2006 hiker gets one.
If you are hiking this year, but will not be at the Kick Off, you may pick up your bandana at Donna and Jeff Saufley's in Agua Dulce.
Thanks to Gottago, Cupcake, and Yogi for their generous support of thru hikers and of the Kick Off!
