Hiking26.com Hikes the CDT !

Hello !  It's me, Ron, but my hiker friends call me 'Train' - I'm a Hiker, an Artist, A Photographer, and possibly a bit crazy!  In 2012 I hiked from Mexico to Canada via the Pacific Crest Trail - 2660 Miles wearing 26 Wedding Gowns !  Next I will attempt to hike the Continental Divide Trail, Canada to Mexico, through Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico! This trail varies from 2[phone redacted] Miles long.  My themed attire? Tux & Kilt.  It's not as exciting as a dress, but this trail is a bit more difficult.  I'll need a MINIMUM of $1 per mile to begin the hike.  

This is the next step in my 'Triple Crown Wedding Party' that I dreamed up along the way. (After the CDT, should I hike the Appalachian Trail in Bad Bridesmaids Gown? I think so !!! )

I hope to begin the CDT hike in June of 2013 if I reach my funding goal (I'm saving all of my money too, and have hiking26 photos and gear available on my site - Hiking26.com

So if your a fan of hikers or just plain ol' crazy ideas and want to help me get to the trail this year, It'd be great if you helped me out!  Your contribution will help pay for food, socks, unexpected gear replacement, and resupply shipments along the way, and with a little extra, I may even be able to shower once or twice in the 5 month journey... :-P

Please Note - If I do not reach my funding goal, the hike must be pushed forward to 2014.
