  1. My brother posted this video on FB saying he made a cameo in your video. 1:05:02 😂😂😂

  2. I've watched all three of your through-hike documentaries over the past week or so and I've become a huge fan. Your grit and determination are impressive and I love your southern charm (I, too, am from the south). Your decision to quit the rat race and follow your dreams are causing me to reevaluate my life and make some critical decisions in the near future. I'm about twice your age, so I don't have anymore time to waste. I hope to meet you at your speaking engagement scheduled in Charlotte, NC later this summer. God bless, Dixie!!

  3. Congrats Dixie, wonderful documentary, you are very strong, an example! I'm brazilian but the PCT is in my list!

  14. One of the most remarkable adventures a person could go on. I'm so proud of Dixie for making the journey. I couldn't stop watching. Only wish I could do it myself. Congratulations!!

    Hello! I'm Giulio and I'm writing to you from Italy. Fantastic country, do you know Italy? hehe !! Congratulations for your adventure. Gorgeous. I did Te Araroa in New Zealand. 3000 km but with a lot of mud and rain! In a couple of years I would like to do PCT and I would have 5-6 questions that may be useful to others too. Here they are:
    1) Did you use Guthook?
    2) How do you find your way in the snow? Are there signs for example on the rocks?
    3) I saw that it rained a few times, confirm?
    4) How many total nights did you spend approximately in your tent?
    5) Why did the sleeping bag get wet and you had to go back to town?
    6) Speaking about sleeping bag, which one did you have and what was the temperature?
    7) I have a zpacks hexamid solo plus tent, do you think it's ok?
    Thanks a lot and the next adventure 🙂

    I have the same bracelet for Katahdin! What a great video, and congratulations!

  18. I just re-watched this and re-loved every second. So many moments struck me again, but the part where you teared up really got to me, because that is the only time I recall you showing emotion caused by fear, and it stands out because you are the bravest woman I have ever seen. Even when you crossed paths with the mountain lion on the CDT you weren’t that scared (or at least didn’t get that emotional) . You definitely made the right call to wait before that crossing, and it paid off. I am so glad you went back to Snoqualmie Pass when you did too! It was in similar weather (actually worse) that Kris Fowler disappeared the year before, and they are still looking for him. My favorite scene is when you asked the spider to eat some mosquitos, and BAM, he caught one! Great catch by him and you!!! I am watching you, Fancy and mom doing your missed PCT spots now, and loving it. You are my hero, Dixie!

    Awesome! I clicked on this video out of curiosity and watched it in one sitting. So cool t

  21. So you got to experience the cold in the Pacific Northwest. I have lived here most of my life and I can say its brutal at times. It will chill you to the bone but at the same time offer you incomparable beauty. I am so proud of you for sticking with it. The Pacific Northwest is no joke. Great job on finishing. I really enjoyed watching the whole video. Can't wait for to watch the CDT video! You have definitely inspired me.
