This week Sara and I drove the northern route across the U.S. Driving is way easier than walking 3000+ miles. My co pilot and I are in a Subaru Outback that I kind of converted into an adventure vehicle. In the back we’ve got a 3 inch think memory foam mattress topper that I cut … Continue reading Road Trip Part 1: Driving across the U.S.
Day 130 9/6/17 16 miles So last night, before going back to the trail, a bunch of us went out to eat at the Mexican place in town and I have to say it wasn't the best burrito I've ever had. The portions were good but then they covered it in like … Continue reading Canada!
Day 92 7/30 0 miles Took a zero today in Dubois. We've got some logistical limitations coming up due to permits in Yellowstone so it made sense to spend another night in town. Plus I didn't sleep well on the floor of the church hostel last night so I could really … Continue reading Island Park, ID

Then I returned to the room to continue sleeping until checkout. Queen B and I … Continue reading South Pass City, WY
Day 76 7/14 6 miles Had a very nice time enjoying the comforts of town today. We hitched about twenty miles west to the town of Saratoga because of the better grocery store and this place ended up being a really cool little town. There was a restaurant right on the … Continue reading Rawlins, WY
Day 72 7/10 Zero miles I spent the day in Steamboat relaxing, running errands, eating and not hiking. It was really nice. I'm not a big fan of taking zeroes because they're just unproductive and 2 nights in town get expensive but Queen B and I have both been feeling pretty … Continue reading Encampment, WY
