Thank you, ESCO

The idea of hiking the CDT was born out of an unfortunate event.  On November 17 my position at ESCO was eliminated.  I worked there for 11 years and had the privilege of working alongside some fine people on five continents. 
A few days later, my lovely wife Cindy suggested I hike the CDT!  Good call, Cindy.  Better yet, ESCO trusted my integrity enough to invite me back for three more months as a temporary employee. 


The work, and the pay, helped pay for my gear, food and expenses while I will be on the trail.  Thank you, ESCO, and the many hard working people who I had to say goodbye, or happy trails, to.

  1. Good luck Roger!

    As you know I too understand the desire to hike long trials and being laid-off is the perfect chance, having done just that last year.

    We all wish you the best and we hope that your trip will go smoothly.
