CDT Complete

On September 18th, 2017 Buddy Backpacker and his family completed the 3050 mile Continental Divide Trail. This completed a long journey that has spanned almost 8000 miles and last more than 5 years. 
Buddy and Crew began hiking in April of 2016 at the Crazy Cook Monument on the Mexico border. They hiked almost 2000 miles in 2016, ending that part of their trip at Old Faithful in Yellowstone National Park. In 2017 the trio completed the last 1000+ miles southbound from Canada from July through September 18th when they finished back at Old Faithful.
At 9 years old Buddy is the youngest person to have completed the Continental Divide Trail.
