“After 3 attempts to finish, I finally got it done this year.
2016 – Campo to Snoqualmie Pass, forced off by weather
2017 – Snoqualmie Pass to Lemah Creek, fell and badly damaged my shoulder
2018 – Snoqualmie Pass to Hozomeen, B.C., alternate route due to fire closure
2019 – Stevens Pass (wanted to see what the smoke was hiding last year) to Manning Park, B.C”
