Trek Across America – Gear Junkie is “Packing It Out”

Two adventurers named Seth and Abby are, in partnership with REI, bike-touring 5,000 miles across the U.S. They call it the “Packing it Out” project.  Their goal is to pack out trash along the way and to meet with local cleanup crews and spread their message. This year, their trip is from April – September, from Georgia to the Pacific Ocean in Washington state.  You can track their progress and watch the pounds packed out climb as they reach their destination.  At the time of this writing, they have collected nearly a ton of rubbish from the trails they’ve traveled.

In a recent article that you can read here, Seth and Abby make note of their adventures.

“In the past 3,000 miles across the country, we’ve had all sorts of experiences that run the gamut from incredible to miserable. Here, we’ll delve into a few of the good, the bad, and the downright ugly of the past three months.”

One of their good memories, as they tall it, was of “Cowpuck” and his wife, who among other good things, helped to restore their faith in humanity.

The bad includes some less than inspiring campsites.

And their ugly story involves two bikes and a tunnel, complete with a good ending and a lesson learned.
