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. My next big adventure will be the Israel National Trail starting in February 2017.

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.

Thanks To Those Who Got Me To The Trail

Big thanks to all my gracious hosts:
John and Susie Cassidy and their wonderful daughter Amelia in Simi Valley, CA
and my girls in Oceanside, CA:
Dayna and Chelsea Hillier and Laura Marquez.
Couldn't even have started this hike without their help.

Look at all the love from my sister Carol!
Instant rice, oatmeal, couscous, quinoa, summer sausage, Vienna sausage and peanut M&M's.  She knows what this hiker likes.

Perfect resupply gift from my sister Patti.
Oatmeal in a zip-loc freezer bag.  Tuna and salmon, Ramen, Rice Sides and peanut butter.  Everything a hiker needs to keep going.  Love you Patti!

Much love for my sister, Pat.  Her generous support of my attempt to thru-hike the PCT is much appreciated.

This is a good deal.  For every UPC code you enter they donate a buck to preserving the National Parks.  Easy to do - worthy cause.  Go to this website.

Please help support my friend Scott 'Squatch' Herriott in his quest to make awesome documentary films about life on the trail.

Sorry to hear that my good friends Dragonfly and Beaker will not be joining me in Southern California.  Bummer because I like hiking with them and their knowledge of the PCT is invaluable.
