Pacific Crest Trail: Pic from Erick
Sharon completes Run Down Under (Australia)
Sharon completed her 14080km Run Down Under, a virtual lap of the Australian continent, in 2487 days.
Her lap of Australia started Jan 1 2016, and finished on her favourite trail with her favourite running buddy, her kelpie Lulu. She finished on her favourite trail which was specially chosen to complete the occasion.
Sharon said, "it’s been a lot of fun & a lot of great memories made!
I've loved doing Run Down Under. It keeps it interesting seeing where you are on the map, how many km to go, where you are on the leader board for the week, month etc!
I had some special memories in that 14000km! 2 Oxfam 100ks, my first marathon, so many Oxfam training days, runs in Vic, SA, NSW, Qld. Hiking in the Great Ocean Walk, Wilson’s Prom & should have been the Overland Track (arragh covid!), now doing Overland in Feb. My ArmaSkins came on many many of those 14000km! "
Really enjoyed RDU! Now I’m onto RDU2, another lap of Oz but a different route."

Meegana at Little Devils Stairs (Virginia USA)
It's always good to check in on Meegana. She's usually on the move.
"This past trip was my first time camping at the top of Little Devil Stairs.
Nearing the end of the day the trail was much quieter than normal and we were able to watch the sunset through the trees.
Little Devil Stairs is not nearly as sketchy as the Big Devil Stairs Trail - other than a cemetery on the Keyser Run Fire Road. There are plentiful water crossings and lots of fun big steps to climb up on."
Pacific Crest Trail Completion (USA)
Erick, aka Dogfoot Trailing, has reached the end of the Pacific Crest Trail after starting way back in May!
Well done Erick!
Here's the scene at the Northern Terminus.
Now back home Erick is, "Feeling good, tired but happy. Body still wants to eat but I won't be as active for a while so trying to watch the weight.
Strange to be home missed my bed, but missing the trail and friends more."
Apart from the terrific photos that Erick shared he also gave us entertaining insights into daily trail life on youtube.

ArmaSkin Ambassador, Art “Karts” Huseonica is staying focused on being fit and preparing to reboot his epic challenge of Canoeing the 2020 miles of the Yukon in May 2023.
As our regular readers know Art has been prevented twice now from completing the journey. First was the Covid lockdown in 2020 and then in 2021 just a couple of weeks into his journey down the Yukon, storms and floods raged ahead of him which made continuing the journey dangerous and would have represented an unnecessary concern for local authorities if he had continued.
As you can imagine the cost of these sorts of challenges is not easy. If you are aware of any companies that might like some sponsor visibility on his journey please pass Art's details to them. We know from experience that Art goes out of his way to ensure companies that help him get plenty of coverage in his media.
