Dream of ‘American Perimeter Trail’ still alive for Bend backpacker

Bend resident Rue McKenrick wants to create a hiking trail that connects the contiguous United States. He set out last year to hike the whole thing and made it about 10,000 miles before weather conditions and health problems forced him to come back to Bend. Now, he’s heading back to North Dakota to pick up where he left off.
