So awesome. I wish I were physically, mentally, and financially able to do something like that.

That's quite a commitment. Glad he's taking the time to document the trip so well.
On every trip into the Superstitions, I find another Gold Mine. Today the mine was filled with Memories. I can not wait for the next trip.

Glad to see Ben is still going strong- I corresponded with him a bit when he was on the AZT.

Interestingly, there was another couple of AZT thruhikers this spring that linked it up with the Hayduke Trail and finished up at Arches NP: http://www.trailjournals.com/entry.cfm?id=332966
