Mexico to Canada: A 4-month hike

The COVID-19 halted foreign trips around the world in 2021, causing millions of individuals to cancel their travel plans.

Tim Beissinger and Renee Miller were not among them.

The two are "thru-hikers," a word that refers to a type of hiking that begins and ends in multiple locations while traversing significant distances.

Rather than staying at home, the American couple decided to take advantage of the pandemic by embarking on a 3,149-mile journey along the Continental Divide Trail, which runs between the Mexican and Canadian borders.

Miller and Beissinger documented their four-month trek along the CDT on the social media platform TikTok, where they now have 1.7 million followers.

Miller and Beissinger dried 100 cooked dinners and mailed them to the communities they expected to pass through on their walk to ensure they had enough food.

Miller said that it's extremely good to have a nutritious prepared supper at the end of the day, adding that these meals typically include a mix of carbohydrates, veggies, beans, and seasonings.

During their voyage, the pair didn't always have access to clean water and had to rely on streams, lakes, and rivers to stay hydrated.

It was critical that we had a water filter. She claimed that if the water supplies were tainted or contaminated with giardia, "we could have been sick. " "It may have thrown us off our game."
