Hiking with Dogs (so far)

Oh Damn. This ish is tough. I mean TOUGH. Seriously one of the most difficult parts of this hike has been the dogs. Granted, there are two of them, but just in case you were thinking of attempting a thru with your pup:

THINK CAREFULLY. Of course you want to have your dog with you, but doing so completely changes the parameters of your hike.

Back to the Real World: Part 1

I originally wrote the post you are about to read in mid November, but never quite got around to posting it.

In one day we met over 30 Trail maintainers who volunteer their time and sometimes money just to make our time on the trail suck a little bit less. Continue reading “Community”

Lady on the Trail

Disclaimer: if you are butt hurt by discussions of feminism or choose to believe that women do not have bodily functions, you should close this blog.
I mean personally I think you should close it and then go learn how to be a functioning member of society, but I’m biased. In any case, you’ve been warned.  Continue reading “Lady on the Trail”

On the Real

Oh, I’m sorry, is that not what you were expecting? Let me rephrase.

This shit really, really sucks. Continue reading “On the Real”
