Food Resupply Strategy for Our PCT Thru-Hike

Of top interest to hikers (and those living vicariously through us) is how in the world we keep ourselves fed throughout the 2660 mile Pacific Crest Trail. There are many, many ways to create a solid resupply strategy, but Sean and I have decided…

Why I’m Thru-Hiking The Pacific Crest Trail

Just over a year ago, I sat down with all of my nerves, anxiety, and excitement and scribbled out my reasons for setting out on my thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail. (You can check out that post here on Appalachian Trials if you’d like)….

Our Appalachian Trail Thru-Hike 2015 Gear List

This is the final list, weight, and cost of all the things we started with on our Appalachian Trail thru-hike. Although we are typically super budget conscious, we realized the importance of investing in our gear. Let’s be honest. Sean is the gear guru. Watching…

What You Actually Need for a Thru-Hike

When it comes to gear, I must admit that I get very overwhelmed very easily. I wanted to make a short and concise list of what the heck you actually need in your pack. If it’s not on this list, you probably don’t need…

My Favorite Part of the Appalachian Trail

It’s been three months since I stood on top of Katahdin in a dream-like state after completing my thru-hike.  I can’t deny saying that I’m really still processing everything, and the adjustment back into day to day life hasn’t necessarily been easy. To most…

The End of a Journey: The 100-Mile Wilderness and Sumitting Katahdin

Nearing the End

We woke up early at White Wolf Inn feeling some of the affects of perhaps one too many rounds from last night’s 2000 mile celebration. Thankfully, we just had to walk downstairs to a fantastic breakfast and hot coffee. After eating, we returned upstairs…

13 States Down, 1 To Go!!!

We managed to pull ourselves away from White Mtn Hostel after our 3 night stay by 11 a.m. During yesterday’s zero, I was really struggling to get the motivation to finish these last three weeks of hiking. Fortunately, all of those feelings of self…

Through The Whites

We were finally back to the AT around 11 a.m. from our little “Detour.” We pushed over the other side of Guyot and continued on our way. By about 1 p.m., we made it to Zealand Falls Hut and began to make our lunch….

Detour: Part II

The day had finally come to enter White Mountain National Forest. We awoke just as the first bits of light were coming into the sky. We wanted the earliest start possible for the challenging day ahead. From the shelter it was 5 miles and…
