Angela Maxwell Is Walking Around the World for Women

On May 2, 2014, with $12,000 saved, Angela Maxwell left her best friend’s home in Bend, Oregon, to start a five-year walk around the world. There’s no pre-approved path for the small ranks of pedestrian circumnavigators, the dozen or so people who’ve claimed they’ve walked around the world —so Maxwell devised her own route. She traveled the 175 miles to Portland, and then across western Australia. She next headed to Vietnam, where she hiked 60 miles from Da Nang to Hue and then spent three weeks recovering from dengue fever. A year into her circumnavigation, she arrived in Mongolia. One night, a two weeks’ hike from Mongolia’s capital city of Ulaanbaatar, in a valley surrounded by mountains, a stranger entered her tent and raped her. “It was the moment that every woman is afraid of before they go out into the world,” the 37-year-old former business consultant says. After the attack—“it was over in minutes,” Maxwell says—her assailant left. Maxwell packed her gear, hiked a few miles

Stio Divide Tee LS — Men’s & Women’s: $35 (50% Off)

Stio Divide Tech Tee Long-Sleeve

Available for both men and women, the Divide Tee LS is equally skilled at keeping you warm during crisp, fall mornings and protected from the sun during that midday hike.

The poly/cotton blend offers up the soft, comfy feel of your favorite cotton shirt, but it dries four times faster than cotton and resists odors. During testing, I also found the thumbholes to be convenient and comfortable.

On days when I know that time is short between transitions, I reach for the Divide Tee because it looks great (and works hard) on and off the trails.

The short-sleeve Divide Tech Tee (in men’s and women’s) is also on sale for 50 percent off.
