Two women in hiking gear smiling

Lauren 'Neon' and Bethany 'Fidgit' met while thru-hiking the Pacific Crest Trail in 2010. Two individually accomplished thru-hikers, they are currently on a human powered endeavor to travel the length of the Americas connecting the story of the land and its inhabitants. Since 2015, they have traveled 14,000 miles across 9 countries so far on their way to the Arctic Ocean.

Fun facts:

-Cattle guards in Canada are called Texas Gates
-Sasquatch ain't got nothing on Megalodon
-International thru-hiking as a duo for years on end is something between being adventure buddies and astronauts.
