In which there are many maps and no definite answers.

It has been brought to my attention that when I ask for help along the way, people to meet, and places to stay, it might be a good idea to let you all know where exactly it is I’ll be walking.

As per usual with me, nothing is set in stone. However, here are some maps with a general idea of where I’ll be heading.

Starting from where I am today:

Hah, pretty detailed, right?

I’m just about into Indiana, and here’s how I’m thinking of going.

Mostly I just need to hit Kokomo, IN, avoid Chicago, and then at some point start drifting up towards Rock Island/Davenport area where I’ll meet back up with the ADT.

The ADT maps for Iowa,

(Iowa is a bit iffy for following the entire trail, as it would cut down on time to skip the ups and downs and try and go straight across)


and Colorado.

Once I get to Denver/Boulder I’m planning on reassessing the situation and going from there. Portions of the CO trail make me a tad nervous, so I might be changing it up there. We’ll see.

Hopefully that clears things up a tad and lets people know where I might be looking for a place to stay. If you are familiar with any of the areas I’m proposing to go through and have some tips or suggestions, please don’t be shy in sharing!

  1. Do you have any idea if you’ll be on the southern ADT route or the northern route in Colorado? I have a neice in Colorado Springs, also her daughter lives further north of there. Let me know when you decide, in the meantime I’ll send her your info………………Take care.

  2. If you’d like to come through Salt Lake City and Utah, I’d love to meet you and Anna. And you’d both be very welcome to stay with my dog and I in SLC. I don’t have a very good lawn for camping on, but I do have a couch, an awesome clawfoot bathtub & shower, and a very friendly 11yr old dog, lol. And I love meeting new people. ^_^

    ps. I’m a friend of Martha L’s, on FB. She posted a link to your blog on FB a few weeks ago, and the moment I saw the word ‘adventure’, I was hooked. 🙂
