Hike for Days was created to be a space to document my adventures and spread the knowledge I’ve gained to a wider audience. I’ve been on a lot of awesome trips and seen a lot of cool places. Getting out to experience the natural world has been an essential part of my human experience, and I aim to inspire others to push themselves to get out there too, and more often. My trip reports are not written to be guides. They are ideas. Many of these trips were conceived by finding a cool-looking spot on a map, or noticing an intriguing area from across a valley.
I’m finally pushing out trip reports, but there’s a lot left still to do. For the foreseeable future I’m fully focused on the CDT, with plenty of final thoughts and gear reviews from a summer of hiking to push out. Four years removed from my PCT thru-hike, I had a bunch of questions about how this journey would unfold. Is my body up to it? My mind? With the conclusion of this big adventure, there will be plenty to write about this year. What’s next after that? I am both scared and excited for the future. Just the way it should be. Just the way I like it.
If you have any comments or questions, please let me know. Head over to the Contact page to shoot me an e-mail, or comment below.
If you’re curious about the CDT specifically, head on over to the Continental Divide Trail 2019 page where everything CDT is linked including a map of my route from my SPOT tracker. If you want to find me on my next adventure, check out the Where Am I? page. The map might be in motion.

We followed you throughout the PCT and are now humbled by your aspirations this time. Following you every day is a fantastic contrast and escape from the worlds many problems which otherwise consume us. We have sent you a few burritos to keep you going and to allow you to remind us of the simple pleasures of life like walking in nature. We hope that people in strife torn areas of the world get to live their lives again with equal simple pleasures whatever they may be. Good luck. – Colin and AnnieT

Thanks so much you two. I’m happy to have you back on the journey with me. That hike on the PCT sure feels like a long time ago now, huh? Yes, the world’s problems have shifted and seem to be getting worse. I feel so fortunate to be able to walk freely once more, following my dream, when so many others are living the unimaginable.
