Pacific Trail Guide Parody: Directions to Our Room

I wrote this parody back in 2000, when Rainmaker and I arrived at a sweet motel, just out of Ashland, Oregon. For those of you who have read and loved the trail guide for the best of all long trails (your opinion may vary), you'll soon see the humor. This is absolutley how the guide discribes the trail.

A PCT GUIDE BOOK version of:

Directions To Our Room

From the dining area cross a table and chaired saddle (.002m) turn west until you see a ladies room. There you'll find a refreshing faucet, although late comers may find it seeping (.00012m).

Descend north on an east facing staircase. Pass a room. Pass another good room. Pass an old abandoned room (.0035m).

On an east facing west rising door you'll note the number 24 which has been posted since the new easier route was established in 1983. Head north. Open door. Close door. However, this won't get you to the Post Office. So, if you need to go to the Laundry Room, head east from your saddle.

Those who complete this section may want to celebrate at the liquorish bowl, (4,290-.003m)a seven way junction where intense PCT Register Logging is going on.
