Continental Divide Trail Map

Third time's the charm.

Since both my AT and PCT hikes have been somewhat successful, and their journals have not, I think it's only fair I should keep up the trend and fail to complete a CDT blog too. So hey folks, enjoy it while it lasts! The average is about two weeks...

As a wee bit of background, in the summer of 2012 I thru-hiked the AT. In the summer of 2013 I hiked 2000 miles of the PCT, and this summer I'm going to finish off the rest and put the PCT to bed. If all goes to plan, I'll be tackling around 2200 miles of the CDT in 2015 from the NM/CO border all the way to Canada. I'd love to thru-hike it, but I only have four months between college semesters and I'm am NOT an uber hiker by any means. So unfortunately the triple crown will have to wait till 2016... but hey, that's also the year I graduate and move to the states for good so it should be worth waiting for!

This is really just a notification post, and a bit of procrastination while I study for my finals. I'll follow it up with some prep posts as the year goes by. I cannot wait to finally be out there! Just 365 more days to go...
