    Talking Fronkey's Thru-Hike Finale

    This is it! The end to our story on the SHT. It was a great adventure and an experience I won't soon forget, but things had to come to an end.

    I want to send out some thank yous to my friends who helped me make this journey possible.

    Water Monkey - Thanks for letting me use your spot so my lady and friends can stalk me on the trail. Mighty nice of you.

    Stairguy - Thanks for letting Kaleb borrow some HG stuff. He thought of you every night when he was warm in the hammy.

    Skygzr- I rocked those purple leopard gaiters with pride for 250 miles and your Golite Jam has now thru-hiked the SHT.

    The Staples - Thanks a bunch for the info on canicross gear. I can't imagine hiking with my dog without using that stuff.

    And also a HUGE thank you to everyone who showed support and watch my silly videos. It's always great to read your comments and I do really dig hearing from you all.

    Congrats Travis! Looks like it was a great trip. One of these years I will have to hike the SHT rather than driving on by on the way to the BWCA.

    Calebnesses, solar flare in the lens, Wolf see a mouse?
    WaterMonkey is a giver.
    An understanding Sheila=priceless.
    Sad, no wolf with my cuben.
    You look SERIOUSLY bundled!
    Split Rock River=deja vu, been there
    Answering Caleb's question. No.
    He'll smoke the marine training.
    Thanks to Ms.Yeager
    No water in 10, death nail for me.
    Legs dont get cold, I can relate.
    Purple gaiters rule HA! kinda go with the sweet pinky air bridge.
    Love the warm days and frigid nights.
    Full campsites everywhere. Stealthing sometimes has to happen.
    Can you ship a JuicyLucy?
    More solar flares! Love 'em.
    Who won? Yep, both contestants are super winners.
    OK being honest, McDonalds was a let down. Watching you inhale there a let up
    Feel like we got to know Caleb a bit....good kid....good cousin taking him.
    Loved the series Fronkey. Looking forward to the next big adventure.
    Car is loaded and happysurprised I got to see the last installment!

    thanks for letting us tag along on your thru-hike...maybe one day we can make it up that way
