As a person who has been serving a variety of demographics such as at-risk youth, underserved youth, developmentally disabled adults, and veterans, for six years now, I know what it's like to hike uphill. I want to give my heartfelt THANK YOU to all of my current sponsors for making my dream a reality. The graciousness and help to fill my canteen will go beyond this journey, and positively affect lives far beyond my own.

To my biggest Trail Angels, my Mom and Dad. Thank you for all of your support through out this journey, on the trail and off. Who knew all those family camping trips up at Big Sir would amount to this.
Bobo’s Oat Bars are the go-to snack for parents, athletes, professionals and foodies who want to embrace good health without feeling confused about ingredients or drained in the purse. With Bobo's there’s no need to worry about artificial anything, including additives, sweeteners and other harsh chemicals. Bobo’s Oat Bars are for people who want to eat intelligently, without feeling deprived. They also offer delicious gluten free treats. I especially love Bobo's because of their packability and delicious taste!

We are so proud of you Trev – taking on the challenge of completing this amazing journey in honor of your grandfather Herbert is a wonderful tribute to his memory – (as we recall his 1,000 mile hike from San Francisco to the Seattle World’s Fair in 1962 for Rainier Brewing Company). We wish you a fun and exciting adventure – and we will be thinking of you every step of the way! -Aunt Nina, Uncle Fred, and your cousin, Freddy Meyer.
Thank you Nina, Fred, Freddy!

THANK YOU to the Baxter family for your contribution to my trek! Craig- for giving me tips on good places to train in the area and slogging up big hills with me. Bonnie- for being an amazing and supportive sister, making me laugh, and really showing me what family means. And to little Boxcar Willie- Can't wait to take you out on the trail someday!
Thank-You to all those who rallied around me recently to make sure I had enough funds. Your donations assure that I can kick the buck to trail angels and "get a room" when the going gets really tough. You are the best and I appreciate you all!
Thank's to the Femia family for your contribution and unique Japanese goodies. I hope to hike sections of the trail with you all when the boys are old enough to put on a pack and you trek as a family!
And thank you to those who have helped me along the trail so far. Lane Taplin for your ongoing inspiration and support from afar. Kurt Perkins for your kindness and encouragement. Bobby Feehan for the letter that will hopefully get to me by Canada. Larry, Pete, PA, and Becky Rudy for opening up your home and filling my belly during a big storm. Ziggy and the Bear, The Saufley's, F-Troop and the Anderson's for being such sweet trail angels. To Diane in Big Bear who bought be a 12" pizza. JJ for delicious cookies, a shower, and a walk down memory lane. Scott for your advice as a PCT veteran. Lynn Cannon for your loyalty to my blog and the 50 bucks! Shalhoob Jerky for being delicious and fueling me for miles! And so many other's that I'm sure I am forgetting in this moment but you are in my thoughts out there!
Thank you to "Uncle H" for saving my butt twice on trail now... for shuttling me back to my car on my 100-mile warm up hike, and for helping me skip over that section on my real hike. I will be dreaming about that pizza we got in Idylwild until I get to Canada! (Pictured is Uncle H holding onto his Dad's St. Christopher- the same one he carried from SF to Seattle in 1962, and the same one I am carrying from Mexico to Canada as we speak!)
Thank you Amber and Sam for the trail goodies. Even during the crunch-time of planning your wedding you thought of me. It just goes to show how selfless and awesome you two are. I hope to see you again this summer... let's go on an adventure!
