  1. I don’t think we ever met on the AT, but I walked with Littlefoot for a bit, so heard a lot about you and Buzz! I was browsing the AZT website and stumbled upon your blog. Glad you’re still out having adventures!
    All the best,

    1. Thanks Foot! I remember Littlefoot talking about you a lot too! Yea! Still out there, the AT got me addicted to big hikes. I have the CDT coming this summer and I’m going to do a shorter hike in a few weeks in Southern California. SDTCT! Are you looking into hiking the Arizona Trail? I highly recommend it!
