I went back to where it all started last year. The Continental Divide Trail Kickoff in Silver City, New Mexico.
I printed some hikertrash to wear for the weekend.
I met the Reynolds, some blog readers of mine last year!
And went on a hike with some of the folks from Silver City I met on the same hike last year.
It was nice to spend a few days with Allgood who started his CDT hike the next day, and meet Julie from TOAKS, and Spirit, who was also setting off on her thru-hike.
I passed on the CDTC Trail Ambassador torch (or hiking pole) to Allgood.
And caught up with some hiking friends from last year, like Race.
It was a real pleasure to attend the event, get some closure on my thru-hike, and reflect on the challenges and successes of the hike last year.
CDT, it’s been real!
