Starting June 20th (or later depending on snow melt!), we are going to be setting out to the northern border of the United States in Washington and begin our journey south down the Pacific Crest Trail, hopefully making it to the Mexican border in California 4-5 months later.
This trek is 2,663 miles long (aka 6 million steps!), winding its way over mountain tops and passes, through forests, national parks, and deserts and will undoubtedly be the biggest physical (and I assume mental) challenge of our lives.
Now the reason I am writing this is that we believe this to be a bit of a selfish endeavor. We are essentially taking time off from “the real world” in order to walk through the wilderness for almost half a year – and we would like it to be more than that.
We are aiming to raise a total of $2,663 – that’s one dollar for every mile we walk on trail. It would mean the world to us if you could spare a dollar or two to donate to this cause and help make our hike mean more than just our own personal memories and blisters.
Thanks for stopping by and happy trails!
Madi & Mike
