In November, we decided to venture out and try something a little different—guided backpacking adventures! For our first trip, we took an amazing group on a 20+ mile journey to the bottom of the Grand Canyon!
Day #5 of our 14er project presented yet another day of travel. Sure, there’s over 50 14ers in Colorado, but in order to keep our hikes around ten miles or less we had to do a little bit of driving. Luckily, this project has helped make our travel days a lot more exciting.
After a day of “rest” we had to get back on the trails. Afterall, if we were going to succeed at hiking fourteen 14ers in 14 days we couldn’t take too many days off. So, on Day #3 our alarms rang at 3:30am, we hit snooze a few times, and finally dragged ourselves out of bed.
On Day #1 of the project we decided to go big and feature at least one item from each of these categories. This was going to be a long day so we started with a 4AM wakeup call to get an early start on the drive to American Basin to hike our first 14er—Handies Peak (14er #1).
After climbing Mexico’s 6th highest peak, La Malinche, we set our sights even higher. As we continued heading north we couldn’t help but be drawn to the two volcanoes named Izta and Popo towering over 17,000 feet elevation. Come along with us and watch the video below as we reach new heights on our hike up the 17,160 foot tall Iztaccihuatl, Mexico’s 3rd highest peak!
One year ago, at the 2nd annual üCamp rally in Ohio, we announced the beginning of an amazing journey! Our goal was to take our T@B Boondock trailer (named Rocky) made by nüCamp from the northernmost point you can drive in continental North America, Prudhoe Bay Alaska, all the way to the southernmost point in Mexico at the Guatemala border!
