On August 9, 2014 hiker Allison Nadler completed a thru-hike of the John Muir Trail.
It took her 15 days, and the trail conditions she encountered were pretty different from what I experienced when I hiked the JMT in 2012.
She’ll be posting her trail journal at Trail to Summit over the next few weeks. She just posted day one yesterday, and it’s a great read. I’m looking forward to the rest!
And while you’re there, check out the rest of her site. It’s full of great tips, recipes, and techniques for backcountry adventuring.
The Next Adventure
As you likely know, I really enjoyed my solo hike of the John Muir Trail in 2012. But even though I enjoyed it, I really missed my family during my two weeks on the trail.
So when I started thinking about my next adventure, I wanted to do something that I could try with the entire family. None of the regular family trips seemed grand enough, though.
After some conversations with my wife, we decided to go big. Real big. Think global proportions big.
That’s right, starting August 19, our family of four will be departing the United States to begin our year-long trip around the world.
