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. In 2016, I hiked the Israel National Trail and the Golan Heights Trail. My next goal is to be the first person ever to hike the Baja Divide Trail.

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.

Update 5/1/2014


Happy Thursday!  I thought I'd give an update on Chris/Wolverine. He's hiked about 200 miles so far and sounds great.  He says his "spirits are soaring!"  Which is fantastic to hear
He will walk into Pie Town New Mexico in about 6 days.  Check this place out: http://www.pietown.com
His stop after that is Ghost Ranch near the New Mexico/Colorado border.  This is where I will send his winter gear, for the Rocky Mountains, things like an ice ax, crampons (these hook to the bottom of your shoe and have small spikes on them to help you walk on ice, heavy boots, warm socks, and his stove so he can have hot meals.

Have you seen the video on how to get water on the CDT?  Take a look.

If anyone out there would like to send him a message or anything else, let me know and I will get it to him.
Thank you all for your support.  Keep those positive thought, good vibes and love coming for our hiker!

I ran into Wolverine today and his hiking companion. They were very thirsty since NM has been in a drought for the past 10 tens, there was no water in the designated spots on their map. I gave them the water I had in my lunch. They were ok except for their extreme thirst. At 1:30 pm, they were headed for Pie Town, NM from the Mangas lookout tower where I was working for the day. I offered them a ride to Pie Town, but they insisted on walking the 30 miles there.

As Wolverine's resupply coordinator I'd like to thank you SO much for giving Wolverine and Beaker your water. I spoke with Wolverine after your encounter and he said you saved their sanity. You must be a very generous person to give up YOUR water to others.
Keep following the blog!

Wolverine, do you like pie? (Sorry, I couldn't resist.)
