  1. Dear ‘Just Kate’ – We have just shared the first instalments of your incredible trek by taking turns to read it! Your photos are amazing (Bella and Sascha’s favourite is the rubber ducky under the windmill) and we hope your injuries heal quickly. We need a list of addresses to send Tim Tams!!

    1. Awww, thanks Ladies! xxx
      So happy you’re coming along for the journey. The rubber ducky is along for the trip, you’ll see him featuring all summer. 🙂
      I’ll email you some addresses where I’ll be resupplying. Yay!!! I’ll be the envy of all thru hikers with Tim Tams!

  2. Amazing photos, Be’el. Great to chat this morn and hear you in high spirits despite the minor delay. Hope your shin splint mends quickly to see you back on the amazing trail.

    1. Thanks Richard!!! I know, the views were really really interesting, especially the clouds. Can’t wait to get back out there. It’s feeling a little better today. Just need to wait and see how it goes, but I think i’ll probably be on the trail again by Friday. Thanks for the support!

  3. Hang in girl!! You’re tough; you’ll be fine. What a great writer you are too!! Thanks for sharing. I miss you! Heal up fast. Can’t wait for more photos!!

    1. Miss you too!!! xxx
      Thanks for following. I’m looking forward to getting back out there, but definitely not going on until this thing is fixed. I’ve never had a shin splint before, so painful!!! It’s starting to feel a little better today, yay!

    1. Inspiration from the coding cave, eh? 🙂 Good to hear from you!!! I actually just got a trail name tonight, ha. I’ll fill you in next blog. Trail naming rules allow the recipient to accept or decline the name, pretty sure I’ll accept but not sure I want to social media it yet! 🙂 Next blog! Thanks for following along, glad you’re along for the ride.

  4. Sounds and looks awesome Kate! I’ve always loved backpacking in the desert. See if you can find find some Traumeel or arnica gel. It will speed up the healing and help with the pain. It’s worth the extra few ounces to carry some with you. Be well!

  5. Hi Kate, 30 years of hospital practice hasn’t prepared me for pictures of your injured feet!! Vicki says good taping( that is the physio coming out)!. Hopefully the town you are in has a spa so you can pamper yourself and a gym so you can stay walking fit !! Take care and mind the snakes! x

    1. Ha! Hmmm, Lordsburg New Mexico doesn’t even have a pharmacy, and definitely no spa facilities! It does have other redeeming qualities though like a fireworks shop that is offering a buy one get one deal on artillery.
      So happy you’re coming along for this adventure. Thanks for following! 🙂

  6. Hi Kate!
    Greetings from the Wasatch! Hope your shin splints are fading away and you are back on track soon. You are such the adventurette! Love your blog 😊.
    Maybe we will see you in Steamboat over the 4th 🎉🇺🇸. Happy trails!

    1. Hi Sheldo! Today it’s feeling almost normal! Going to do lots of stretching and range of motion exercises today and hopefully I wake up tomorrow feeling 100%. Then i need to wait a day, then i can finally go hiking again!!!! Get me outta this hotel room!!!!!!!! I’m guessing i’ll be back on the trail Sunday or Monday. 🙂 Can’t wait.
