Good friends and courageous adventurers Pyar and Cynthia are hiking across America this spring, from Georgia where they met and married, to Oregon where they intend to start a family. While their aim is to have a big adventure together, their message is that it is crucially important that we preserve our wild spaces. They have started Hiking and Hoping on Kickstarter with the hopes that we'll all chip in towards their adventure together. They'll be documenting the whole thing on film and in writing, which promises to be full of heart and fascinating. I can think of no better way to use your funds than to further and strengthen the love these guys have for the wilderness and each other, and to drum up awareness while they're at it.
