Adventurer Hopes To Hike 500 Miles With 1860 Gear

Ben Jenkins created a GoFundMe account to raise $1,500 for a 500-mile trip. He hopes to hike the 500-mile Colorado Trail from Denver to Durango in the Colorado Rockies in 35 days. The catch is that he will be using only 1860 hiking gear. The project is a sort of living history documentation of the journey. The crew will only use modern recording tools and everything else will be authentic.
