Hikertrash PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Hikertrash free pdf Teetering awkwardly on the brink of insanity, unable to handle life in snowy, cold, ultra-conservative North Idaho, Carl and Erin sold their house and set out in search of a new place to call home. Suddenly finding themselves completely free of responsibilities, jobless, and with a little spare cash in the bank, it didn't take long before their serious search for a new life took some unexpected twists and turns. "What do you think we should do when we return to the States?" Erin asked Carl, as they sat outside a tiny cafe sipping coffee. It was a question that had been plaguing her for weeks as they budget travelled across South East Asia in an attempt to avoid winter (and reality). "I've been thinking about it, and I think we should thru-hike the Pacific Crest Trail." Was Carl's totally unexpected reply. Spend months on end traipsing through the wilderness, petting bunnies and chasing rainbows, as they hiked 2,660 miles from Mexico to Canada? How could Erin possibly say no? Life Rule #1: Never, ever, turn down an adventure. Friends wagered they wouldn't last a week, but before they knew it, days turned into months as they made their way across America at three miles an hour. As Carl and Erin morphed into Bearclaw and Hummingbird, they found that being hikertrash suited them. Though they will both admit the trail was life altering, there were no great epiphanies, no magic answers to all of life's burning questions, no "ah-ha!" moments when suddenly life made sense. This is not a tale of personal growth. Through blisters and shin splints, jaw-dropping landscapes and craptastically unspectacular forests, searing heat and pouring rain, complete hilarity and utter exhaustion, this is the story of what day-to-day life is really like on one of America's greatest trails. As told through Hummingbird's journal entries, this is the story of life on the trail - the people you meet, the things you see, and how, mile by mile, you eventually become Hikertrash. Includes: 6 Overview Maps to Follow our Journey 19 Black

About Erin Miller

Erin Miller was born in the Great White North, otherwise known as Whitecourt, Alberta, Canada, where she lived until her tweens, when her parents divorced and her adventure seeking mother moved her and her brother to the white sand beaches of the sleepy fishing village of Bahia Kino, Sonora, Mexico. Growing up between worlds, Erin developed a passion for nature and the environment and a love of being nomadic. Erin met her equally adventurous husband Carl on the return end of a wander through Central America. When they aren't living in a tent, or traipsing from hostel to budget hotel, they call Bend, Oregon their home. Erin is always dreaming up adventures, loves being outdoors, and is most content when she's wild and free, her tangled hair matted with sand or pine needles.
