I started long distance hiking in 2006 when I was stuck in an unhappy career and relationship and I had a pile of debt. I sold anything of value I had, paid off my debt, and put money into savings for the first time! I quit my career and hiked from Mexico to Canada along the Pacific Crest Trail.
Since 2006, I have hiked long distances every summer. I have hiked all or parts of: The Continental Divide Trail, the Tahoe Rim Trail, the John Muir Trail, the Arizona Trail, the Colorado Trail, the California Coastal Trail, the Bigfoot Trail, the Grand Enchantment Trail, the Hayduke Trail, the Continental Divide Trail, and the Northern New Mexico Loop.
In 2010, I added a second hiking partner into my life. A Border Collie named Sage. He loves long distance hiking, but I quickly realized there was a lot of responsibility in hiking with him. I started writing down what I learned and this blog was born.
Right now, I am either hiking or planning a hike. I hope you like my blog.
