Ken Ilgunas

THIS GUY is amazing. He just finished hiking the 1700 mile proposed route of the Keystone XL Pipeline from Alberta, Canada to the Gulf Coast of Texas! I feel like I found a kindred spirit.
He wrote a fantastic article for Salon.com that my friend Susie pointed out to me. I'd love to be able to use my hike to raise awareness for hiking in Michigan the same way he used his hike to get people to think about this pipeline.  My sincere congratulations and respect to Ken for this amazing achievement.

  1. Amazing article and amazing guy! You are so right about the kindred spirit. This part could be you speaking:
    "I was an adventurer at heart, burdened with the duties of making a living."
    Kinda sums it up.
