    Default Walk The Parks: 20,000 Miles, 47 National Parks, 2 Feet, 1 Dream

    Hey Everyone,

    Just wanted to throw a thread up announcing my trip, Walk The Parks. In a couple of days I'll be starting at Old Faithful, WY and starting my 20,000+ mile journey! I'll be connecting all 47 National Parks via human power. Check out walktheparks.com for more route details, etc. Super excited to get this ambitious route started. Follow along if you'd like!

    I was skimming the "Other Trails" section to see if there was anything about the Oregon Desert Trail and found this old thread.

    Not sure how often blake checks in here but it appears he has been on quite the journey over the last 18 months. His YouTube linked above is dead but his Instagram has updates and pics. https://www.instagram.com/walktheparks/

    These are the routes he is taking, it looks like he has Phase 1 (WY/CO/UT/NV/AZ) and Phase 2 (GA to ME) knocked and will be starting Phase 3 (roughly: North Country Trail > PNT > PCT > AZ > NM > TX > .. ... ... > finishing at the FL keys) when he restocks the bank account.

    Congrats/thanks blake on living your own life, choosing adventure, your commitment, and sharing it with the world.
