Due to a back injury, sixty-five-year-old Ted Stekkinger was unable to carry a backpack to complete his dream of trekking the Pacific Crest Trail to Canada, so he decided to trek with his Wheelie Walking Trailer along alternate routes, aqueducts, and trails, from his home in Ventura, California, to Canada. He completed his goal in the summer of 2015 after trekking 1,435 miles (2,309 kilometers), camping most of the way.
Ted's impressive tracks:
