What started out as a promise back in May 1999 only to be forgotten for several years before being turned in to a real goal is close to being realized after several revisions.
The promise was to take Kellisa to visit all 50 United States by her 18th birthday. The promise grew to include hiking at least one trail in each state.
Along the path, Kellisa became an older sister to Laurel who started joining adventures to new states and without much planning, both girls are close to hiking a trail (together) in all 50 states.
Kellisa has visited 47 states to Laurel's 43 and together they've shared a trail in 41 states. Trips are planned to visit and hike the remaining states by the end of 2016.
