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.

Great Western Loop

April to November 2007
I take the further-faster-lighter mantra to its extreme: 6,875 miles, 33 miles per day for 208 days, and an average base weight of about 6 pounds.
