5 months and 8 days till!

First off, THANK YOU to all who have taken the time and money to donate to our journey via We are very grateful and appreciate every penny.

That being said, this month has been a combination of working, skating, hunting, and more working. We also started a YouTube page specifically to show you what we will be working with. YouTube: ClimbTheDream. And Twitter: ClimbTheDream. Sounds a little better than TheClimbToKatahdin as a lot of people forget "Katahdin". Not the easiest mountain to remember, I agree. We are doing our best to keep all of these accounts updated for all our friends and anyone else who is at all inspired by our trip.

Back to YouTube for a moment. We tested Chaser's camera in one video and gave a peek at what we will be using to film the trip in another. Next will be gear we've purchased that are coming with us on the trip and videos on how we will be dehydrating, packing, and shipping our food. Oh, and a test run of everything at Tunica Hills.

Things we still need to do:
clothing, shoes, rain covers, few more camera accessories, forms to be filled out for filming and contacting national parks about legally filming on the grounds for doc, make a loose and solid itinerary so people can send us things in a timely manner, airport stuff(us and Chaser flying), purchasing the food and preparing it to be shipped, and keep on saving. I'm sure there is more but I can't think of it at the moment. But I'm looking forward to all of it.

AND Halloween is almost here!

 One last thing, I've been putting off seeing far distances as my eyes aren't that great. Not that we'll need another thing to keep track of on this trip but I wanna see everything we'll be seeing. So, sneak peek:
Man, my nose looks crazy.

I hope everyone es having a great FallTober.
