Bartram Trail Day 4: 18.9 miles We slept in and gorged ourselves on the hotel breakfast before loading up and heading out the door for the second and longer part of the Franklin Road Walk. We had about 10 miles of road walking to do, and our packs were feeling very heavy with 5 days […]

Bartram Trail Day 1: 19 miles We woke up to our alarm, and got out of our warm comfy bed for the last time in a while. At 8:30AM, Jen came to our house to pick us up. Her kids are used to being strapped into the back seat of her car. An hour and […]

Admittedly, 2018 will go down as one of my favorite years.  I knew that hiking across New Zealand followed by an awesome summer job working in three national parks followed by a European adventure would be a hard act to follow. In December, we got back to our house in Asheville and started applying for […]

Just Two Hikers by Dormouse - 7M ago

Day 8: We slept in and made our way to the train station a kilometer downhill where we could take a train to Corte, a large town where locals actually live. We figured we would be able to get to a proper grocery store and stay there until we felt better … trying to travel […]

Day 5: 10.5 miles, 2200ft ascent, 1560ft descent. In the morning we were the first to get going (I think we’re just used to packing up quickly). The trail was so surprisingly easy that I think we may have been walking faster than 2 miles an hour. I was a complete pleasure to walk on […]

Day 3: 5.5 miles, 4100ft ascent, 4035ft descent. During the night it poured with rain. In the morning John told me he had also heard thunder and seen lightning overnight.
