Great fast-forward action on the Continental Divide trail!
They say if you move too fast you can’t stop and smell the roses. Thing is, moving this fast would actually mean we could take more breaks and have more time for sniffin’!
Walking is a pretty slow business. To complete the entire trail in one season means putting one foot infront of the other from dawn ’till dusk. Breaks are too often a short luxury. That’s why its a good idea to go ultralight. A light backpack equals a more enjoyable time on the move. And if the majority of our five months on trail are going to be spent on our feet, making slow but steady progress towards Mexico, counting ounces and reducing our gear is imperative. Or we could find a way to move this quick. Anyone out there figured out how?
