Here I will share stories, photos and thoughts of hiking and backpacking.
The name of the website comes from my first thru hike, the GR20, where my boots took a beating
My goal with this website is to not only to chronicle my hiking adventures, but to pass on information on how we prepared for the hikes, our plan, and then what we learned from the hike.
This website is a ongoing project and I am busy adding content from past hikes.
Fun little project I got involved in was writing an article for the online magazine Trail Talk, hosted by Garage Grown Gear. The article was a rebuttal to another article about why Canadians have not embraced ultra-lighting. Was a real family affair putting the article together. Backpacking – Not Just for the Ultralight

Check back for updates to the website, as I will be continually adding content.
In Memory of Volcano – Her Adventures:
All hikes listed on this site have been hiked by me or by the author of the description. I do my very best to be as accurate as possible in the trail descriptions and conditions but I do not consider this site to be an official guide. The descriptions are personal in nature and express the opinions of the writer as to the challenges and difficulties of each hike. Some of the hikes mentioned can be extremely dangerous and I take no responsibility for the fate of each reader should you choose to explore these trails. Again, these are personal descriptions and each account has been completed by me or the writer of the description. More trails will be posted as they are explored.
