Congrats Richard! I freelanced some river trips for him when he owned World Wide
back in the 80's. He originally worked for Western River Expeditions for
Jack Curry, then eventually started his own river company. He is a very nice
man. I had no idea of his other accomplishments - pretty impressive!!! Keep
I'm 63. I'm inspired by this. I'm gonna talk to my wife about
doing this together! What a great way to build and preserve good health as we
Great story and a great example of what we should all try to do. Definitely need
more stories like this one - much more uplifting that the usual things in the
media these days!
Great story! I met Richard when he had a retail store in St.George, and marveled
at his solo trip rowing the Atlantic. Glad to hear he is still finding the next
great adventure! Such a nice guy too.
Interesting article. I'd be interested to read a follow on article
discussing the details of how or if he cooked food and how he got resupplied.
Also some details about the trail. Is is usually within sight of the ocean?
What an awesome story. Thanks for writing it. And, Richard, thanks for living
it, walking it, and mostly for your love of adventure.
I followed quite a few trail journals this year in preparation for my own hike
of the PCT in the near future. It's great to see a fellow Utahn complete
the journey, especially with all the early snows in the Cascades this year.
