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.

Name Change!

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!
