Hi. I’m Sleepin Bear and am looking forward to thru-hiking the CDT this year. I’ve thru-hiked the AT, PCT, and SHT; solo kayaked the whole Mississippi River; and bicycled across America from the Pacific to the Atlantic, around Lake Superior, and along the Mississppi River from Lake Itasca, MN to Venice, LA. My passion for outdoor adventures is inspired by experiences from others and myself. I hope you enjoy the journey.
