Wow, the CDTC fundraiser we put on last week was a great success! We filled the seats and raised over $1,300 for the trail. I’m grateful for friends, co-workers, and everyone who was just plain curious about these crazy people who quit their jobs to go hike across the country…again and again and again. And for all my sponsors and supporters for donating some amazing items to the raffle, thank you!
But don’t take my word for it, here some some pics (courtesy of Robert Curzon):
Tons of items were donated to the raffle
I put everything in giant zip locks, because zip locks are GOLD on a trail!
Patagonia @ Bend was very welcoming and let us use their beautiful store for the talk.
I shared a bit about why I hike.
And invited Kim (SOL), Sage & Mary (Speedstick) to tell stories from their CDT hikes.
I shared all the gear that I’ll be taking on the trail.
Even the bug condom!
This little pup really wanted to win the Ruffwear dog bed.
Grady (Fun Size) won the Stanley lunch box, I expect to see him carry that on the CDT this year…
So much fun, now for the hike!!!
