Hello all, Martha here:
I talked to Chris on Sunday the 27th and all was well. He and Gary and Beaker ( Bob Turner) had stopped in Mimbres to take a well eared zero. Everyone was tired, a bit sore and just needed to relax. Gary has taken some great photos. Are you following his blog, Our Endless Earth too?
Chris started hiking again Monday, 4/28 and will hit Pie Town (!) then Grants and Cuba. the stop after that is Ghost Ranch where I will be sending all his winter type gear, ice ice, crampons, gloves, lined pants, stove and more.
I'm sure you have read of Chris dedicating his hike to Andy-Astro. Read here for a post from Andy's Mom, Elizabeth Gosselin http://hikingthepacificcrest.wordpress.com
I'll continue to update here when Chris doesn't have time or connectivity. Feel free to join me on my Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com
Some very nice and generous donations have been coming in.
A HUGE thanks to everyone out there.
This is what a zero day looks like:
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.
