This trip was called "crazy" by many and generally misunderstood. Thanks to all who believed in this solo challenge and to those who provided biomechanical support, gear, local info, pounds of soda bread, many pints of Guiness, and most of all...inspiration. 

 
GEAR
 
Catskill Hiking Shack Online. Thanks Susan & John for the great Vaude pack, those little last minute items, and all your excellent advice as usual.

A very special thanks to Sinead for the Irish background info and the inspiration to make Ireland "my own" for a week. If it wasn't for you I might have ended up touring the Sahara standing up...
 
 
Peace.
