Ten years later, I took my first steps on the two-thousand mile the Appalachian Trail. Next came the Pacific Crest Trail (2,650 miles), Continental Divide Trail (3,000 miles), and Hayduke Trail (only 800 miles, but nasty ones!). Now I want to use the skills I learned from America’s greatest long-distance hiking trails to travel some of America’s greatest waterways. My current adventure is to paddle a kayak from the top of the contiguous United States to the bottom (Minnesota’s Northwest Angle to Key West, Florida).
