Local long distance hiker (and Portland Hiking Meetup group member) Erin "Wired" Saver is doing a presentation at REI on her recent thru hike along the Continental Divide Trail. The 3,100 mile Continental Divide Trail is considered one of the most rugged and remote long distance trails in the world. It is the least known and traveled of America's "Triple Crown" (three longest trails including the Pacific Crest Trail and Appalachian Trail). Solo backpacker, Erin "Wired" Saver (PCT 2011) will be speaking about her 134 day thru hike along the CDT which took her from Mexico to Canada along the spine of North America this past summer. The presentation includes anecdotes, pictures, and videos from her hike. For a sneak peek, check out her highly followed blog at www.walkingwithwired.com where she kept a daily detailed journal of her hike.

      Do you go to many of these Erin? Have they ever checked the signup list? What was the $ charge for this?

      This is my presentation and they have never checked for them...there has always been a seat...they usually send out a reminder to the waitlist and tell them they can come, but be willing to stand or something like that if it is full...hasn't been a problem thus far. Lots sign up and bail since it's free and they don't have to commit.

    I'm a fairly fit "senior" and enjoy easy to moderate hikes. (too lazy to work too hard :) ) I love the Northwest and enjoy meeting new people. I'll be watching for "lazier" hikes that I will enjoy. thanks!
