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

Skykomish – mile 2471

We are in Skykomish, mile 2,471, with less than two weeks and about 200 miles to go we are close to finishing out thru hike of the PCT. And none too soon. Rain has fallen almost every day the last three weeks and night are getting colder. Some very wet days and nights this week. Nearby slopes have seen snow. Today we walk back out into more rain….

We plan to reach Canada on Sept 27th, drive home the 28th and then go to the ALDHA west hiker gathering the weekend of Oct 1,2 and 3. We will be back home in Sandpoint on Oct 5th or 6th to start our transition back to life after the trail….
