Current Hiking Set-Up (two person, 1 carries tent, 1 carries cooking system):
Superior Hiking Trail
September 10-17, 2019. Very good hiking, many steep climbs, overall moderate difficulty as no climbs are very long. Unfortunately, this trip was truncated early at ~ 160 miles (Canada–>Split Rock) by an injury.
April 29-30, 2019. Very good suburban hiking, many steep short climbs. ~ 60 miles. Connecticut/Mass Border–> Berlin, CT.
John Muir Trail
September 2-13, 2018. Great weather except for Whitney, which was unseasonably and brutally cold. ~ 210 miles. Happy Isles–>Whitney Portal.
August 7-9, 2018. Careful water drop planning on this very dry late-summer hike. More poison ivy on this trail than it is possible to even imagine. ~ 60 miles. Deam Lake–>Delaney Creek Park.
September 4-12, 2017. Very wild trail, with lots of getting lost and wayfinding. ~ 160 miles. Crawford Notch–>Canada.
The Long Trail
August 3-17. Still the best and probably the hardest hiking trail in the United States. ~ 270 miles. Canada–>Massachusetts.
