Catracho on the PCT (Pacific Crest Trail)
Erick is an ArmaSkin Ambassador.
He has covered 420 miles of the challenging PCT. And the latest report is: "No blisters so far thanks to ArmaSkin"
We've provided Erick with a couple of pairs of ArmaSkin that he can share with some fellow hikers that have not been so fortunate with blisters.
As well as the wonderful landscape views, like this one of Mt. Baldy that Erick is sharing with us, he continues to entertain us with his high spirited reports.
We are not sure if below Erick is demonstrating his namesake hiking style Dogfoot or him practising his crane stance.

Yukon 2020 is getting closer!!! ( Arizona / Canada / Alaska )
Yep, the frozen Yukon River is thawing!!!! And Art Huseonica's plan to canoe the length of the Yukon is fast coming to a head!
Art is continuing to train for this amazing challenge. He works on his stamina via tough hiking journeys and then spends hours a day on the water, strengthening his core and toughening his upper body for the strenuous canoeing challenge ahead. We are also hoping that he is toughening up his backside for the 2020 miles of paddling.
Art recently took delivery of some fresh ArmaSkin which will be critical to keeping his feet dry during what will be damp and cold times with relatively little foot movement to generate internal warmth.
You can follow Art's preparation and adventure via his Instagram account https://www.instagram.com/kartshuseonica/ This is not to be missed! It will be one extreme challenge for this seventy year old against the elements!
The cost of the Yukon 2020 challenge has amounted to around $50,000 USD, most of which has come from Art's own savings. But, there have been many folks who have decided to provide some encouraging, and super appreciated, cash support to his Go Fund Me account : https://gofund.me/ae10e064

Commenting after the event, "The hardest effort I’ve done in my life. I don't know if it was the steepest I've ever run but it sure felt like it. The second part left me without energy, I planned for 4 hours but I didn't know how it was going to be, however thanks to the best support crew member Beth I got it done. From km 30 everything hurt, and the most technical terrain was still to come haha. Anyway I will do it again. I’m still recovering. I love that there are always new challenges and we can always improve."
