We are currently on another long distance hike, and the third leg of our "triple crown", the Continental Divide Trail (the "CDT"). Come along with us if you can - if not in person then by following our grand adventure via our "posts from the trail".  Check out our Flickr Photos, which we'll update periodically, and see it through our eyes!

Our Credo...

"Success: To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded!" ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Welcome to our newly redesigned Site!

Anyone who has visited our site in the past will no doubt notice the major changes in the layout and design. We’re currently doing a massive overhaul and re-design of our site, in preparation for our rapidly approaching hike of the CDT (Continental Divide Trail), slated to begin later this month.

For the first time we’re going to attempt “live” updates to the site from the trail, as often as technology permits (meaning, as we get to areas where we can get internet and/or phone service). We’re planning to post blog entries via email, and possibly also some podcasts or other downloadable audio updates as well.

Although enjoying the outdoors …
