On November 16, 2010 I set out to Hike 1000 Trails in 1000 Days. I started this Free Blog to keep track of my journey and I hope that you enjoy the adventure. I’ve made it easy for you to Search for a Hike in Your Area. Click on the Find a Local Hike tab to discover new adventures in your backyard. You may also enter in keywords on the Search Tab found at the top of this page to find the trails that you are looking for.
- Hike / [hahyk] verb,
- To go on an extended walk for pleasure or exercise.
How To Read This Blog
At the top of each blogpost you will see a Day #, Hike # and New Track #. The Day # refers to how many days in a row I have hiked. The Hike # refers to how many hikes I have taken since starting this adventure. New Track # refers to how many New Locations I have trekked. My goal is to reach 1000 different locations over a 1000 day period. I will not miss a day, regardless of the weather or how ill I may feel. Some days I will hike along familiar trails which I consider Duplicate Hikes. Although these hikes count toward my Hike #, I will not be given credit for the New Track #. Makes sense, right :)...
Hiking With for a Purpose
In March of 2011 I created the SEALtheBeach campaign to help protect the Pacific Harbor Seals in Carpinteria, California. Though I have temporally suspended these efforts, my hope is to revisit the original plan to seek full time beach closure which will ensure year round safety at the sanctuary.
Currently I am hiking to raise money for Pediatric Cancer. Click the link below to learn how you can help...
