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.

Huge thanks to Megan Serow and the good folks at Fitbit. I'll be using their technology to track my hike. I'll be carrying both the Flex and Zip models for comparison but it will be hard to keep the Flex charged up. The Zip has a battery that last 5 to 7 months.

The devices themselves were easy to set up. I assigned an account for each of them. I look forward to posting some big numbers.

Thanks, Fitbit!

I couldn't find if you had a follow up post on the two fitbits you wore. I would be interested in a comparison of the two after a thru hike. Thanks.
