Announcements and Life Happenings

Hello!

We hope you have enjoyed winter and are excited about spring and summer!

It’s been awhile since we last posted – here or on social media – so we wanted to write to you today and give you an update.

Today, April 4th, marks the 3 year anniversary of the start of our PCT thru-hike. The 171 days we spent on trail and in trail towns continue to bring a smile to our faces when we look at pictures, talk about our experiences on trail  or when we pass through a place that intersects the trail.

As great as our Pacific Crest Trail hike was, our newest adventure that started on April 1st will undoubtedly be tougher, more fulfilling and full of growth opportunities for all of us.

This adventure is..

PARENTHOOD!

We are proud to introduce to you all Miles Henry Krameryan.

He was born on April 1, 2019 but we promise he is no April Fools’ joke. Miles was born at 3:25pm to two excited and slightly nervous parents. We’ve done what we can to prepare him for a lifetime of mountain exploration.

He has already hiked to the top of Mt Charleston (11,916 ft),

12 weeks pregnant

and Gaylor Peak (11,004 ft)

14 weeks pregnant

and slept in a tent on top of Sentinel Dome in January of this year,

The parents and kiddo alike are in for many more summits and hikes to come. And to make this possible we’ve invested in Goldie Hawk.

Our new (to us) adventure mobile – Goldie Hawk

Goldie is a 2004 Toyota Tundra 4×4 mated to a Four Wheel Camper Hawk . This duo will (hopefully) make it easier for us to get out and explore our beloved open and wild places with our little one as quickly and as much as possible.

While the next few months will be full of diaper changes instead of peak bagging and swaddling instead of cowboy camping, we look forward to sharing our stories with you as our lives change.

One thing’s for sure though, the adventures will go on!

With love,

Laurie, Andy and baby Miles

Eric, Jack and I (Joy) are so happy for all three of you!You might already have one but if not we’d like to send you this… we got it as a gift when we adopted Jack and loved it. We used it for day hikes but it is still just like new. Do you already have one? If not, its yours!
