I Am Hiking! Ride In My Shirt Pocket!

Hello Friends! 

I am currently hiking from Pueblo Colorado to Colorado Springs! Let’s see how far I can get! Message me in the comments and I will give you my coordinates on Google Maps!

Colorado and Alaska running legend Shawn Erchinger caught wind of my distance attempt and dropped by with some cool items to take with me on the way!  It is always cool when a local celebrity steps down to help us little fellas!

  1. Yay, nephew! Keep up that pace…you can do it!! It is going to be pretty cool today in terms of the temperature so that is good.

  2. Woo Hoo!!!! That is amazing! You are getting so close! 👏😎😄👟👟. I am so glad you are feeling good. You are most welcome…thanks for including us in this adventure!

  3. You are in the last stretch, nephew…amazing! Keep pushing, nephew!!! You got this! Praise the Lord!

      1. You’re welcome! Wow!!!! You are so close….what an incredible accomplishment!!!👏👏👏😄👟👟

    1. Will do. I believe my body is primarily burning fat. I do not function well that way. I am going to use All Trails calculation of 35. It accounts for a lot of things with distance.

  4. Dairy Queen is a hop, skip and a jump from Walmart so that is/was close enough. You did it!!! Huge congrats!!! 👏👏👏👏🥳🥳. Hopefully, you are resting now.

      1. Yay, nephew!!!! You did it! We are so happy for you! 🥳🥳😁🙌😁 Phil 4:13. Rest up…

          1. I might try and do it, not sure, but before I get too old to be able to. Maybe I can set the goal for 45…two years. Don’t know if I could do the whole thing though as it takes a couple of months.

          2. Way nifty! The longest wilderness hike for me was Four Pass Loop. We were unable to complete it due to the numerous avalanches from the prior winter and the excessive snow buildup.
            Still, we hiked the area for four days living out of our bear can!

            I an excited for your plans. I hope in everything that you follow through and do it. That would be the best!
