It’s just t-minus two days until the start of Nikki’s 4-day, 273-mile expedition on the Long Trail.  We’ve arrived at the Kimballs’ house in North Chittenden, which is our base until the start of Nikki’s expedition.  In between training runs and camera tests, we spent much of the day sorting through a massive mound of outdoor gear that we sent out to Vermont for the expedition.  Tonight Nikki packed two huge duffle bags chocked full of essential supplies — electrolyte powder, protein recovery shakes and carb energy chews — along with four brand new pairs of running shoes made especially for her expedition. Tomorrow the film crew and support team move in to position at the Northern Terminus of the Long Trail, where we’ll prepare for the start of Nikki’s expedition at dawn on Monday morning.  Stay tuned for updates from camp and the trail!

The film was funded!
