Thru-hiking in style.

2015
I rode a bicycle from Vancouver, Canada down the coast 1900 miles to San Diego. Highlights: the Oregon coast, the California redwoods, and condors in Big Sur.
2017
I hiked 745 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail, starting at the Mexican border and ending abruptly in the Sierra Nevada when I fell on hard-packed snow and could barely walk for the next five months.
2018
I hiked the Hayduke Route, which meanders 800+ miles across the Colorado Plateau, passing through all five of Utah's national parks and the Grand Canyon. I'm now back on the Pacific Crest Trail and/or other trails until September.
