This site collects our hiking and travel journals, in some vague, mostly chronological order. It started as a journal of our July, 2014 End to End hike of The Long Trail in Vermont, a 275-mile hiking trail that runs the length of the Green Mountains from Massachusetts to Canada. You can find those entries at this link.
We are hikers in our early fifties from North Carolina. Though we have extensive hiking experience, the Long Trail was our first thru-hike. Our E2E was not a low-cost hike — we stayed in B&Bs and went out for good meals and great Vermont craft beer as often as possible. Our daily journal posts have all the details, plus you’ll find a Logistics page with additional information and a Gear page for the gearheads among you.
We’ve since been adding our journal entries from other hikes, both recent and in the past. Given the WordPress system, the posting date doesn’t correspond with the travel date on any of the entries – sorry for any confusion.
