This website is meant to serve as a platform to share my adventures on America's Long Trails.  Allowing access to personalized blogs for each Trail and a Gallery for all the pictures in between.  Thank you for visiting.

Originally a Commercial Pilot from Seattle, Kevin "Sunshine" Silvernale thru-hiked the Pacific Crest Trail in 2016 where he fell in love with the all that comes from living out of a backpack, traveling and waking up to a new horizon almost every day.  Following his heart, Kevin has put his flying career on pause and pursues his happiness on the trail.


Long Trails have a special appeal to me. They contain purpose, challenge, sacrifice, freedom, joy and a connection that I can't seem to find anywhere else.
