A few months from now I'll be heading out on a ~4,250 mile thru-hike of what I'm calling the "AZT to GDT Route". It's a combination of four different long-distance hiking routes that runs from the U.S.-Mexico border at the Arizona Trail's southern terminus to deep in the Canadian Rockies at the northern terminus of the Great Divide Trail. Its largest section is along the Continental Divide Trail, which it follows for about 1,800 miles from southern Colorado to Waterton Lakes.
I've really enjoyed reading about hikers that find new ways to make use of hiking trails (i.e. not just hiking from end to end like everyone else - no offense intended to any thru-hikers) and hope that others will find my hike interesting for the same reason. There's lots of info on my hike at http://benmayberry.net/adventures/azt-to-gdt and I'll be posting updates there once I get started.
I'd be interested in hearing any thoughts on this,
