In 2007, Melissa and Reuben thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail (AT) for our honeymoon. We enjoyed that journey so much that we convinced ourselves that we would like to hike the other two big National Scenic Trails so we could become Triple Crowners. The planets have aligned and we have decided to make that dream become a reality. During Phase Two of our hiatus from teaching, we will hike the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) and during Phase Four, we will hike the Continental Divide Trail (CDT).
