Justin “Trauma” Lichter and Shawn “Pepper” Forry completed the first ever "winter" thru-hike of the PCT during October 21, 2014, through March 1, 2015, for a total of 132 days. The pair took "a few days" off around Christmas. While they actually started 2 months before the start of calendar "winter", and finished about 3 weeks before the end of calendar winter, the feasibility of anyone actually completing the full PCT within the 3 months of calendar winter is suspect. A brief video of the pair at the finish of their hike is here. "Are we yo-yoing? I don't think we're yo-yoing." - Lichter and Forry at the US/Mexico border.
