Coast to Coast Highs

Over the last couple of months, I’ve been sharing my favorite stories from the Coast to Coast, so today I’m keeping it short and simple with a photo essay of the high points from the walk.

Not our spiritual highs, but the actual physical high points of the walk.

the end, fellow pilgrims, coast to coast


Our Coast to Coast walk was made possible in part by the good folks at Macs Adventure, who arranged all our accommodations and luggage transfers and who should in no way be held responsible for our tendency to get lost or our ridiculous YouTube videos.



  1. Just wanted to say how much I’ve enjoyed your Coast to Coast series. Very inspiring! Will need to add it to my walking bucket list!

    1. Thank you so much Ellen! I appreciate your saying that and reading along. 🙂 I hope you do get to walk it!!

  2. Every time I see your stories I’m just amazed at how far you walked and for how many days in a row. Looks like you all had a great time!

    1. I’m a little amazed my own self. Truly, truly. It’s amazing what you can do just a little at a time.

  3. Please write me. I’m a fellow adventoure…(I have no idea how to spell that correctly.) Anyway, I have stories about how my sister and I tried so hard to “live off the land” in the U.P. and realized we had zero idea how the hell to do that. It’s a funny story. My e’mail address is and my name is Stephanie.

  4. Sometimes here in Las Vegas, we have these Mojave Desert Wind Storms. We’re having one right now. My house is being battered. It’s being blown from Kansas (and I don’t even live there) to Oz.

    I’ve shared your website with my sister-in-law and she loved it every bit as much as I do. You’ve totally inspired me to get out of here and go see more of the world again. I will do that the traditional way if this wind storm does not force me to do so by blowing me away in my house.

    1. So FUN! Thank you so much for reading along! I will definitely write and would LOVE to hear your stories. My email is alison AT alisonchino DOT com if you want to write me first. 🙂 XOXO
