Day Four – Part 2 – And … More Good Snapshots

Wyatt and Chrissy’s Cape group rolled through Orleans today, sounding good and looking forward to a round of mini-golf after today’s bicycling was done. [As an aside, with a shout-out to our great parents, and a small dose of self-promotion — we received a great comment from their surfing instructor. He told Kevin today, “I don’t know where you get your kids, but year after year they are fantastic. They are always polite and always super enthusiastic.” Huzzah, Apogee families!] Lucas and Danika are out on Nantucket for a second night, and absolutely crushed a 38-mile challenge ride around the island! And then they sent in the below picture that made it all look so very easy…

Day Four – Part 1 – Good Snapshots


Lots of good snap shots coming in from the field today, my fellow Apogee-aniacs!

Getting right to it, our Vermonsters, Drew, Rachel and Co. — sent in the below pics of a post-hike game of Frisbee-500 in the summer-warm waters of Emerald Lake. Below that is a shot of the action during a fierce watermelon-eating contest. They head into the backcountry tomorrow and will spend five days on the Long Trail — we’ll catch up with them on the other side!

Day Three – Moving Parts!

Lots of moving parts today, Dear Blog Readers!

First, a quick update from our intrepid coast-to-coasters. Nick, Cait & Co. veritably sailed into Walterboro, South Carolina last night. Nick, who as you may recall is leading the trip for the second time, noted that they made it in a full two hours ahead of the same day last year. Cait reported high spirits as the group crossed into Georgia today and asked that we specifically thank Ann and her crew at the Georgia Welcome Center for their hospitality and the highly appreciated freeze pops they distributed to the group. One state down – eight to go. It’s all downhill from here, right?

Day Two – Part II – World Domination Continues

Out west, Rachel and Sam’s group was a just a couple miles outside of Townsend when they checked in. Sam sent this somewhat dark, somewhat arty candid of the group getting going this morning. It’s bit grainy, but that is Montana’s beautiful Front Range in the background.
