Pacific Coastal Range Expedition

I added a new link to our “Pemba’s Playmates” list earlier this week and I wanted to make sure all of our loyal readers check it out.  Claire Porter, formerly of Midwest Mountaineering, is hiking as much of the Pacific Crest Trail as she can this year.  Unfortunately her partner had to bow out early due to a herniated disk so Claire is hiking the rest of the trip solo.

We’re wishing her the best of luck this year and hope that the trip goes well for her.  Check out her site and updates at  She has a pretty cool interactive map as well so you can keep up to date with where she’s been.

In more Midwest Mountaineering news, congrats to Andy Knapp for being inducted into the Adventurers and Explorers Hall of Fame.  Check out the SNEWS article here.
