Boulter, Colorado

by backpackingbongos


486 miles.

89,354 feet of ascent.

37 days on the trail.

7 zero days*.

29 nights wild camping.

15 times stood at the side of the road hitch hiking into town.

1 day of snow.

3 blisters.

2 pairs of shoes.

Possible alien activity.

Plenty of thunderstorms.

No bears.

*A zero day is a day when you are not hiking on the trail. It’s usually spent in town resupplying, so you often end up walking large distances anyway!

    • Hey both, how’s things up in Scotland?

      • we are good. your name was mentioned on Outdoors station by Bob Cartwright – about doing a podcast for him. You need to talk about walking with dogs – pass on what you know. USA is amazing, if you can listen to Scotland Outdoors on BBC Scotland radio – a great show, never miss it. Going round in circles wanting a Scotland tent – 100 mph winds proof and light.

      • I have to admit that I have not listened to the Outdoor Station for a while now. Reuben does a mean interview! You can probably get a tent for 100 mph winds but it is not going to be light!!
