Track my progress as I hike the Continental Divide Trail!
On April 15, 2015 I began my 3100 mile hike on the Continental Divide Trail.
This trek will challenge all of me, from sore muscles to blistered feet. Hiking up to 20 miles a day through temperatures below freezing as well as into the hundreds. Feeling all of the pain and knowing that the days to follow will bring more of the same; I will push forward in memory of my mother who died in 2013 from Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP).
Please consider sponsoring my efforts with a donation to CurePSP with the links on this site.
This website will chart my progress, and you can follow my updates while on the trail through my Twitter feed or Facebook page using the links on this site and by clicking on the tabs above. You can also track me on the CDT using the links on the pages, and looking for my GPS name "HeHo".

I packed up in the rain and wind and got on down the trail. I was happy to have my DriDucks to keep me dry. My fingers were cold, and I ended up wearing rubber gloves under my other ones.
The rain persisted most of the day and it was very foggy, but the trail was very nice and with no real climbs. I made good time.
Seminole picked me up at Rabbit Ears Pass and we got some pizza and beer. I plan to take 2 days off before getting back on trail. My legs and feet are sore, but my right foot seems less painful
