57 miles

Note: Lou is hoping to walk 500 miles in 2016 and each year thereafter until completing the trail. It is a way to remember the tens of thousands of women and children that have to walk long distances each day to obtain drinking water. He is seeking to raise $100,000 annually for the delivery of water filters for clean and safe water to be provided in a business and sustainable model to the “least of these.” Check out his blog at www.Businessconnectworld.com. Would you commit to contributing $1.00 per mile walk annually?


  • North Country Trail (4,600 miles/418.8 completed)
  • 500 miles in 2016…Achieved to date: -199.2 miles

Goal: One Million dollars over eight years to bring clean and safe water to the poorest regions and the most needy (100% of funds raised is for the delivery and purchase of water filters to those least able to pay for them)…Total achieved to date: $78,500/2016 – $29,000.

The Droscha Adventure On The NCT

img_2851This was a five day event. Joining us was Ron and Donna Droscha, friends from college days with their eldest daughter, Diana, with three of her children. Two of their boys, Jarrad and Jason joined Ron and I in the hikes on Saturday and Sunday. Hannah spent time with her mother while Jan and Donna, college friends, spent their time together reading and resting, awaiting the return of their wilderness men at the end of each day!

This was a 57 miles hike on the North Country Trail from Mackinaw City to Petroskey, Michigan.
