Welcome

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

Our Itinerary 2009

For anyone who is interested in following our journey, here is a short version of our planned itinerary. PLEASE NOTE: There is a higher degree of uncertainty than “normal” about when and where we will end this summer’s segment. So, this itinerary will be a roadmap, but don’t expect that we will be following it all the time and it is subject to change.

If you’d like to view the expanded version showing our stops and mail drops (for example if you are planning to send us anything, like cookies or other goodies), click on this link for a PDF version. If you do plan to send something, be sure to check on our current status by emailing or using the Contact Us page, and someone will respond to let you know if we are still on schedule or have deviated, and by how much.
