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

The Rovers

“The Rovers” is the family group that walked across England (along it’s famous trail called the “Coast to Coast”, aka the “C2C”) in September of 2002, and consists of Phil Hough (Nowhere Man), Deb Hunsicker (Walking Carrot, or sometimes simply The Carrot), Bob Hough (Wrinkled Warrior), Joann Hough (Gypsy Jo), Trisha Miller (Red Rover), and Rod Neal (Lightning Rod).

According to the Book of Genesis the Hough Clan Hierarchy was created like this:

In the beginning there was Bob and Joann. They begat an eldest child and only son, Phil. Later they begat an eldest daughter formerly known as Patricia, now called simply “Trisha.” At some later point they had two other daughters who are not relevant to this story because they did not walk “the walk.” Of course, they are still relevant to their parents……..but that’s another chapter in another story.

Phil would meet Deb Hunsicker and they would become a couple. Fortunately we have begat nothing but fun. Trish would meet Rod and they would become a couple. And so it goes………………
