popular gear on the Continental Divide Trail

With “social distancing” being recommended around the world, I’m personally looking at doing even more hiking than usual in 2020.

The objective of social distancing is to reduce the probability of contact between persons carrying an infection, and others who are not infected, so as to minimize disease transmission …

One of the earliest references to social distancing dates to the seventh century BC in the Book of Leviticus, 13:46: “And the leper in whom the plague is…he shall dwell alone; [outside] the camp shall his habitation be.”

Mac annually posts a Continental Divide Trail Thru-hiker Survey.

For example … SHOES:

Merrell Moab 2 Vent
  1. Merrell Moab 2 Vent (Hiker Rating: 5/5)
  2. La Sportiva Wildcat (4.80/5)
  3. Salomon XA Pro 3D (4.64/5)
  4. Altra Timp (4.29/5)
  5. Altra Lone Peak (4.28/5)

I wear various Moab shoes as I find them so much more durable than trail runners. Merrell comes in very wide sizes, as well, which I need due to bunions.
