After hiking from Mexico to Canada, Reddit user, “climberslacker,” posted about his adventure on the popular Internet forum. Hiking across the Pacific Crest Trail, the longest continuous footpath in the world, the eighteen-year-old man walked almost 4723 kilometres over the course of four months – which means that he averaged a brisk pace of about 35 kilometres a day. On his ask me anything thread, the young man shares advice, amusing stories – his prized possession was a plastic samurai sword that he would use to ward off overly-curious bears – and pictures from his cross-continent adventure. Climberslacker embarked on the trip after graduating from high-school; he had been planning the excursion for almost ten months prior. Climberslacker has yet to comment whether his story will be made into popular movie staring Emile Hirsch, but those interested in learning more about his trip can follow the thread here, and even more pictures of his adventure can be seen here.
