Hitting the trail on Canada’s east coast – The Boston Globe

I’m planning to thru-hike this trail next August.  I have visited Newfoundland about a half-dozen times in the days when I used to enjoy long distance motorcycling.  There are so many biting insects there that we often celebrated riding in the cold rain, which kept the bugs down.  I am looking forward to the simplicity of walking, although there will be logistical challenges that a thru hiker will need to work through in order to complete the whole 165 mile hike.

Despite recognition by National Geographic as one of the world’s best adventure destinations, Newfoundland’s East Coast Trail remains virtually unknown to Americans.

    Off topic, not sure where else to ask you this. I know you use or did, the OTB New Balance boots. Do you know if the boots are being sold anymore? I’ve only been able to find random odd sizes.

  2. Jonathan,
    I still hike love those OTB’s not found better yet. The soles are amazing. New Balance sold off the line. I have 4 pairs (unopened) to carry me through my golden years. They may still be out there under another name. I can ask my brother.
