After months of preparations, Melissa and Dicky embark on their Crazy Possible journey, but immediately are challenged by the realities of quitting their regular lives for the solitude of nature. Find out what inspired the couple to leave their life in Portland behind and meet professional hiker, Whitney ‘All Good’ LaRuffa, who thru-hiked the Continental Divide Trail in 2016.
Yellowstone lets the #hikerlife couple distinguish themselves from tourists. But bad weather and conflicting desires about why they are on this Crazy Possible journey keep them from experiencing the full splendor of the Wind River Range seeking out instead warmer pastures. Episode bonus, they find a hot springs waterslide.
Episode 4 opens in Canyonlands National Park with the couple determined to make the San Juan Mountains their CDT triumph. But Melissa is not up to the challenge of high altitude hiking and long-term travel as long-simmering tensions between the travelers come to a head.
After Melissa’s “Turtle Time” plan to save their trip gets rained out, the couple heads to New Mexico. News that Dicky’s film has finally been accepted into a film festival gives the trip a firm end date, adding pressure for the couple to find the answers they sought when they struck out on this “crazy adventure.” They hope their final backpack trip in Gila National Park will provide them with some much needed insights.
