Author Archives: 2 More Miles...
So, earlier this month, I came across an article, initially posted by the University of Washington, that was too good not to share. And yes, I went down the rabbit hole of “nerd-dom” and read the entire study, with charts, … Continue reading
CDT: The Finish!
10/26: 2.1 mi (2.1 – 0.0) As our son wouldn’t arrive till after 9 am, there was no reason to NOT sleep in. Only problem was that it’s hard to do when you are excited about the finish. With only … Continue reading
CDT: Lordsburg to the border…almost
10/22: 23.5 mi (85.9. – 62.4) With a giant cup of coffee from Circle K we made our way out of Lordsburg. Today would be the hundred and third day we’ve been on trail since leaving the Canadian Border, at … Continue reading
CDT: Silver City to Lordsburg
10/20: 26 mi (Hwy 90 road walk to Lordsburg) It was hard summoning the strength to leave Silver City and the comfort of the Triple Crown Hostel, but leave we must. Home was yearning, and once again, we, like many … Continue reading

CDT: Reserve to Doc Campbell’s (Gila Alternate)
10/12: 17.9 mi (2608.8 – 2626.7) A gloriously warm night’s sleep was had by all. From the comfort of our motel room, we could hear the roar of the wind and were grateful for my dad’s foresight. We drove back … Continue reading
CDT: Pie Town to Reserve
10/10: 19 mi (39.8 – 20.8 Pie Town Alt…”original” CDT route) It’s been a while since we’ve been able to sleep in but that’s what we did at the Toaster House. We slept in till 7:00 a.m. and had breakfast … Continue reading
CDT: Grants to Pie Town
10/7: 10.6 mi (2452.8 – 2463.4, ride to Mile 19 of Cebello Alt) Grants is not really a hitchable town. Residents and people traveling don’t seem too keen on picking up CDT hikers, even if we are all cleaned up. … Continue reading
