He's back at it!

People who know me know that I belong on the Trail. I've thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail (twice),the Pacific Crest Trail and the mighty Continental Divide Trail. I've hiked many of the long trails here in Michigan including being the first to hike both the Ironwood Trail and the Great Lake To Lake Trail. In 2017, I hiked the Israel National Trail and the Golan Heights Trail. My next goal is to be the first person ever to hike the Baja Divide Trail.

The purpose of this blog is to keep anyone who is interested informed of my progress and to encourage those who are able to support me in this endeavor.

Hi Everyone!  All is well in Idyllwild at mile 180.  Can't believe I made it even this far.  The desert is unforgiving.  Mostly hiking from water source to water source.  Sometimes it's a spring,  sometimes it's a horse trough.  Sometimes trail angels leave bottles of water at a road crossing.  I'm glad for all of it.  
More pics coming soon.

There's no such thing as NON-POTABLE.

Excellent news! Glad to hear all is well.
Love the hat. You look so Indiana Jones-ish. Next box to pick up is at Big Bear with documents you requested. After that is Wrightwood. I'm very proud of you and miss you!

So did you drink this non potable horse water, my friend? I like the hat as well. How are the dessert nights? Have you found a travel companion yet? Details!

Desert not dessert! I learned the difference from that 10th grade grammar teacher we had together but my iPad likes to "fix" things for me.

Yeah...I wanted to know if you drank that horse water also. Is it not 'potable' because it has horse-spit and slobber in it?

Hey...I just realized I could "hike" the PCT if I had a horse. I could probably even catch up to you and pass you!
