If there was ever a man who defined the phrase “age is just a number,” it’s Art Huseonica.

“It’s been a passion since I was 10 years old,” he said. “I’m 67 years old! Why do I want to do this?” he laughed.

“She goes, ‘Art you have a wonderful opportunity to yo-yo the trail’ and I go ‘Yo-yo? I don’t want to play yo-yo the whole way on the trail,’” said Huseonica.

Turns out, she meant a roundtrip hike from Mexico to Utah and back down, 800 miles each way.
