Wolverine Hikes South America

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. I was the first to hike the Baja Divide Trail in Mexico but failed miserably to thru-hike the Bruce Trail in Canada. I'm heading for Ecuador to attempt to hike the TEMBR.

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.

I'm about to hit the 1000 mile mark!
I started the trail April 25th.  Two months and two weeks later, I've walked 1000 miles.  I have taken no hotel days, three zeros and feel FANTASTIC!
Let me know what you think.  Send me positive vibes, good thoughts...

Great job, Chris. And I knew you when you were only at mile 444!
And you are now over 1/3 of the way, and closing in fast on the half way point. What an experience. Keep those pictures and reports coming in -- we love to read them!

You are killing it!!! Btw, I googled "dino blazing", and Schrody's comment is the third thing listed! Still don't know what it is, though. Apparently there are zero websites that translate hiker lingo.
