After tucking 2015 into bed, J & I realized we’ve had quite a year. If you are a long-time reader, you know I love me some stats. I’m also quite wordy. For your benefit, I chose numbers over words for this post.
111 = Days we spent out of the US (mainly New Zealand, but 5 days in Australia)
1,328 = Miles hiked (mostly on Te Araroa in New Zealand)
106 = Miles mountain biked
101 = Miles paddled
5 = Number of states we “lived in” (if we were there for 2+ weeks, it’s a home)
24 = Number of states we hit (2 XC trips, plus almost the whole East coast)
2 = Number of state high points reached (up to 36!)
5 = Number of TA presentations (3 more to come for you folks in Colorado!)
30 = Pieces of gear tested for Backpacker
33 = Number of friends visited (this is just an estimate)
5 = Number of job interviews
3 = Job offers
2 = Caretaking jobs worked
1 = House sold
Yeah, 2015 was pretty cool. Let’s see what 2016 brings.
