On the Trail Again…

Posted by on September 29, 2013

Summer is waning and I’m on the trail again. Today was my first hike with a FULL pack. Most of the past 12 months were spent researching and purchasing gear that will sustain me for 5-6 months. I had a semi-official weigh-in goal of not an oz. over 30 lbs. I came scary close at 31 lbs. As I continue to make adjustments, I’ll replace items with ones that are lighter to reach my goal. I know it doesn’t seem like much and you might wonder why I would even bother, after all it’s just 1 lb. Think of it this way, carrying 1 lb 2185 miles is the same as carrying 2185 lbs 1 mile… every oz. counts!!

One other thing I’d like to point out. If you haven’t seen the video in my previous blog post, please take a moment and watch. If you love your children I don’t know how this couldn’t touch your heart.

PLEASE ask you friends to join in and support my hike… I will hike until my feet fall off to make this happen… We are over $5,000 and climbing, with a goal of $10,000!!
