Appalachian Trail

Summer 2002
First long-distance backpacking trip. Actually, my first backpacking trip. The learning curve was steep. 2,168 miles in 95 days.

Sea-to-Sea Route

August 2004 to July 2005
My coming-of-age hike. Across North America from Quebec to Washington—7,775 miles in 11 months, straight through the winter.
