My wife’s cousin and husband from Switzerland surprised us with a visit last week. They had just completed the Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada. Great fun to have them stay with us. Loved hearing about their adventure and am a bit in awe of their commitment and efforts. They hiked everyday for 20 miles. They awoke at 5am, hiked all day, then found a place to pitch their tent, had a quick dinner and were asleep by 8pm. The route is 2,650 miles, and it took them 5 1/2 months. Needless to say, they lost quite a bit of weight and ate everything in site during their stay with us.
