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

PCT Trip Itinerary

For those of you who want to “follow” our progress or meet up with us to hike a section or two, here is our planned itinerary. Barring unforseen circumstances I feel this is a realistic schedule, but if you are planning to meet us (or send us care packages!) be sure to monitor our trip reports, or reconfirm via email (or with my family) beforehand to be sure that we are where we should be!
