Cat­pack­ing

Backpacker - - #TRAILCHAT -

Adam Roy’s story about tak­ing his cat Fred (above) back­pack­ing on the Con­ti­nen­tal Di­vide Trail (“Pass/ Fail,” Oc­to­ber 2016) in­spired one reader to share the story of his own fe­line ad­ven­ture.

Jim “Geek” Adams rem­i­nisced about bring­ing his cat, Ziggy, on a jour­ney that saw the pair ca­noe from Con­flu­ence, Penn­syl­va­nia, to New Or­leans; hike the Ap­palachian Trail; and bike from Maine back to their start­ing point. “My trip was 5,091 hu­man­pow­ered miles and Ziggy did about 4,800 with me,” he wrote.
