Calendar Triple Crown 2018 – The Final 3 States

https://youtu.be/TfZFm9zoKkM The end of a long journey, we finish up in TN, NC and finally Georgia. Lots of snow, wet and cold, but this is what we do and what we love doing. What an amazing way to spend 8 months....traveling all over the country to remote, beautiful...

Calendar Triple Crown 2018 – Virginia

https://youtu.be/Y1cTQ_1p_eQ By far the longest section in one state on the AT, we experienced a very chilly, but still pretty Virginia. Through Shenandoah NP and the Blue Ridge Mountains, lots of wind, snow and rain, but any day hiking is a good day. Posting this...

Calendar Triple Crown 2018 – VT to Harper’s Ferry

Journey continues from Vermont, out of New England and across the Mason-Dixon line to the spiritual halfway point of the AT, Harper's Ferry....

Calendar Triple Crown 2018 – ME/NH

Trail #3 starts in Maine on the AT as we race winter south, spoiler alert, we lost the race. That said, we did have colors and finally understood what all the chatter was about regarding the difficulty of trail in New England - it's no joke....

Calendar Triple Crown 2018 – Montana/ID

The Continental Divide Trail may be best exemplified by this section. Rugged, with longer resupplies and nearly every enviroment you'll encounter on this trail at various points of the state. Massive burns, rock formations, mountain passes, large fauna and lots and...

Calendar Triple Crown 2018 – Washington

Washington is an astonishingly breathtaking place when the weather cooperates...and this time through it was nearly perfect. Here is some footage as we finish the PCT in mid-July, with views from start to finish. Glacier Peak Wilderness and the rest of the state may...

Calendar Triple Crown 2018 – Socal Desert

A bit out of order, but here is the footage from the start of our PCT thru-hike in 2018, as we transitioned from the CDT and back to the relatively friendlier confines of Southern California. In 2.5 weeks we traveled over 700 miles to the foothills of The Sierra, but...

Calendar Triple Crown 2018 – Oregon

A new state on our thru-hike of the Pacific Crest Trail as part of our Calendar Triple Crown attempt means more mosquitos and dust, but also perfect volcanic peaks and otherworldly vistas. Most notable in the footage includes Crater Lake NP, Three Sisters and the Mt....

Calendar Triple Crown – The Sierra

Finally had a chance to put this together, check out some footage from our hike between Kennedy Meadows and South Lake Tahoe. Lots of water and snow, but more smiles and views. This is the hardest section of hiking we've ever done and the most rewarding.      ...
