we walk, we talk, we connect
As our explorers, Fidgit and Neon, trek, paddle, and cycle the length of the Americas, the board help handle logistics. They are advised by a panel of mentors on topics like security, health, and social media. Most of all, they are empowered by an international tribe of friends, supporters, and followers.
In November 2015 Neon and Fidgit, began hiking north from the Beagle Channel, on Tierra del Fuego, then connecting with and crossing Patagonia on the Greater Patagonian Trail. They connected this to the Inca road system, the Qhapaq Ñan, and in October 2018 completed walking across South America at Turbo, Colombia.
The team then moved laterally into Central America and by a combination of biking and sea kayaking, propose to connect the route to North America. There the two woman team split up as Fidgit hikes the Continental Divide Trail while Neon bikepacks the Wild West Route.
The northern territories present an array of enticing options from the Great Divide Trail, the Trans-Canada Trail, or paddling the McKenzie River. The team will choose a route as they get closer and can gather more information based on the shifting seasons.
While the team write about hiking and travel experiences, the heart of the journey is connection. Rounding out the perspective by sharing stories of the lands and people. The “Herstory Series” illuminates the experience of women who live in pursuit of their own highest self and are willing to share that adventure. The “Story Time” series relates folklore and local legends which inform cultural perspectives and values.
We look forward to you joining us as we connect the Americas, one step at a time.
