Pacific Crest Trail: Pic from Erick
Chris and Shannon (Camino via Podiensis)
Final day of our Via Podiensis hike. We had a great time. 700k and no blisters. Thanks again to ArmaSkin for making great socks.
Jeremy UTMB (France/Italy/Switzerland)
Jeremy is at it again.
“I finished UTMB 2022 in 45 hours and 35 minutes! Through France, Italy, and Switzerland for 171 kilometers with 10,000+ meters of climbing.
I wanted to DNF about 1,000 times, but I somehow made it. Amazing event and even more amazing scenery of glaciers and endless majestic mountains. I have so many stories to tell and so many people to thank. I’ll start with Stephen Turner and Margot for hosting me in Chamonix, Lester for spending 20 plus hours with me during the race and encouraging me, Pasi for excellent crew service at Courmayeur in Italy. And this pic by Stephen."
And ArmaSkin for blister prevention!
Mikey takes a break (Iceland)

Always up for a bit of play, seems Mikey had a great time covering the icy tracks..
A fun hike and scramble to the base of Hengifoss (waterfall) with some glorious scenes on route.
Brad on the Shawangunk Ridge Trail Run (New York)
Brad: “Had a great time at the Shawangunk Ridge Trail 30 miler race this weekend. Very difficult course, unsupported & no aid stations
No blisters thanks to ArmaSkin. The toe socks are the best!
Erick on the PCT around 300 miles to go! (Washington)
Erick: on the Pacific Crest Trail "Over 190 days on trail now. Some have made it and are home now, others already on another adventure and other have lost the motivation and have called various part up here north of Washington the end of the road for them.
As for me.....I'm just stubborn.
There are strong reason for me to be home already and I do have some guilt, but I feel it in my core that I have to make it. I like the saying "strike while the iron is hot"
And me coming back to finish small chunks of miles is not my thing. I'm gonna get it done. One way or another."
