Single Year Triple Crown

On May 1, I started my attempt of a Calendar Year Triple Crown, hiking the PCT, CDT, and AT in 2018.  Unfortunately, my body broke down and I was unable to finish by the end of 2018.  Instead, I finished my final trail on January 13 making it a Single Year Triple Crown.  The posts below include pictures and stories from my hikes.  The main story, "It's Not About Me" is now available.

Stories from the PCT

On May 1, I started hiking the PCT as part of my SYTC.  I hiked the trail in 83 days finishing on July 22.  For the PCT, I hiked with continuous steps from the Southern Terminus to the Northern Terminus with only a few deviations from the official trail.  My deviations from the trail made my overall hike longer and harder than if I would have just stuck to the official trail.

Stories from the CDT

On July 26, I started hiking the CDT as the second part of my SYTC.  I hiked the trail in 71 days finishing on October 4.  For the CDT, I hiked with continuous steps from the Northern Terminus to the Southern Terminus taking the route that made the most sense to me at the time I needed to make my decisions.

Stories from the AT

On October 9, I started hiking the AT as the third part of my SYTC.  I hiked the trail in 97 days finishing on January 13.  For the AT, I hiked with continuous steps from the Northern Terminus to the Southern Terminus taking the route that made the most sense to me at the time I needed to make my decisions.  As the AT is more about purity so White Blazing was my standard for saying I hiked the AT.  Therefore, I like to say I hiked with continuous steps from Mt. Katahdin to Springer Mt.
