A message from my friend Bain:
My dog and I are setting out to walk across the continent starting October 9th, 2013. All money raised will be donated to wounded servicemen/women.
We are very excited to get started here next month. Throughout the duration of our hike, here are few of our guidelines we made for ourselves. At the end of the trip, we are shooting to maintain a 16 mile per day average. We will sleep under the stars in tents and hammocks, and will not spend any money on shelter. However, if through our support system someone is willing to give us a bed for a night, we will not refuse. We chose to leave in October for the sake of the dog’s health. Archer, my Siberian husky, will accompany me the whole way as long as he maintains perfect health. Anyone is allowed to hike with us at any point in time, just contact me directly if you would like information on that. Our team is highly motivated and we do not plan on letting any weather or terrain stop us from completing our journey. Dallas, Texas will be our halfway point, which we are striving to reach by Christmas. Our team is always open to new ideas on ways to better this fundraiser, so do not hesitate to share your ideas with me. Thank you so much for your support, I truly believe we can do something amazing together!
