  1. Jennifer, I too am hiking the CDT in 2015. I have been using Walkingwithwired.com as a reference and stumbled upon your comment on her facebook page. Do you know of any blogs etc. specifically dedicated to a 2015 CDT hike?

    Thanks

    1. Hi! I’ve been using Wired’s page a ton. I’m very grateful for the resource. So who’s hiking the CDT in 2015 and will keep a blog? I will definitely be keeping a daily blog. I think the following are hiking and may blog:
      Bearclaw http://staywildandtrue.com
      Twinkle http://stevenjshattuck.wordpress.com
      Carrot http://carrotquinn.com

      You can check other sites for blogs:
      http://www.trailjournals.com
      http://postholer.com

      Do you have a blog? You nobo?

      1. Thanks. Yes, I will be nobo. I hope to run into and possibly hike some other north-bounders. I have a friend joining me through most of NM but will be solo after that. Will not be blogging.

  2. Dear Sweet, Incredibly Amazing Daughter,

    Back from SF – long 2 days, Reading your blog – tears in my eyes. With a little more ample time to exhale, and get some needed rest, this will be my parking place for the next 5 (OR LESS) months. hugs and angel hugs, MOM
