As I prepare for my latest and most challenging adventure, hiking the mighty Continental Divide Trail, I changed the name of this blog from WolverinePCT to WolverineCDT.blogspot.com. I will leaving from Palomas, Mexico on April 17th and attempting to hike 3,100 miles north to Waterton Lakes, Canada along the spine of the Rockies. The CDT is the King of the Trails and IF I make it, I will have earned the Triple Crown of Long Distance Hiking.
I'll be posting pictures and stories to this blog so please follow along and leave plenty of comments!
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. In 2019, I hiked the TEMBR in Ecuador and now, I'm going to attempt to hike 1,150 miles of the North Country Trail as it runs through my home state of Michigan.
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 these endeavors.
