Exciting news! We bought a condo! It’s close to the river bike path, near several Natural Areas, and less than a mile walk from the center of downtown Fort Collins. It’s modern, bright, and very energy efficient with foam insulation, a tankless hot water heater, double pane windows, a 92% efficiency furnace, and a downstairs neighbor who will heat our floor. We love it.

To celebrate, we are offering FREE shipping on Pacific Crest Trail: A Journey in Photographs book orders until June 25th. (That’s a good discount because shipping large heavy books isn’t cheap!)

Pacific Crest Trail: A Journey In Photographs Book Cover

We think you’ll love the book — but don’t take our word for it. Liz Bergeron, Executive Director and CEO of the Pacific Crest Trail Association, says:

This is the best collection of PCT photographs I’ve seen! Day hikers, section hikers, thru hikers, and anyone who enjoys the outdoors will love this book. The photos do a great job of capturing the essence of the PCT.

You can view sample pages and learn more on our book page.

Time for us to get packing, both our apartment and PCT book shipment boxes! Woohoo!



  1. Dear Chris and Anna:
    This is why I do real estate. It’€™s so enjoyable to see young people get into their first home.

    I’€™d really like to purchase your Pacific Crest Trail book. I can live vicariously through your adventures, or who knows, I might try it myself someday. What an amazing experience for you both. If you would bring a copy to the closing, I’€™ll give you a check at that time. That way you can bypass the credit card processing charges.

    Best Regards,


  2. Congrats Anna & Chris! We just bought our home too (same one we were renting when you guys came to visit). This summer my project is solar panels on the roof and a ground source heat pump. If we can pull off net zero in the Illinois climate, we can do it anywhere :-)
