If you live in the U.S. and want to hike a long trail during the winter, you have to hike the Florida Trail or one of the long trails in winter conditions (like Pepper and Trauma who successfully thru-hiked the Pacific Crest Trail in winter! Pepper’s website and Trauma’s website).

But I didn’t want to hike the Florida Trail, and I don’t have the skill set for winter thru-hiking, so I went to New Zealand to hike! When we are in winter, they are in summer.
