Through The Whites

We were finally back to the AT around 11 a.m. from our little “Detour.” We pushed over the other side of Guyot and continued on our way. By about 1 p.m., we made it to Zealand Falls Hut and began to make our lunch.… Continue Reading “Through The Whites”

Detour: Part II

The day had finally come to enter White Mountain National Forest. We awoke just as the first bits of light were coming into the sky. We wanted the earliest start possible for the challenging day ahead. From the shelter it was 5 miles and… Continue Reading “Detour: Part II”

Detour: Part I

We left Stratton Mountain after breakfast aiming 13.7 miles north to a highway where we would hitch into Manchester Center to resupply. Like our visits to DC and NYC, Stratton had been a planned stop from the beginning. With the last planned stop now… Continue Reading “Detour: Part I”

Upper Goose Pond to Stratton Mtn

I was thankful to awake headache free at Upper Goose Pond Cabin proving the antibiotics were doing their job fighting off the Lyme disease. After we broke down camp, we headed to the cabin for breakfast. There’s really nothing better to a hiker, or I… Continue Reading “Upper Goose Pond to Stratton Mtn”

Ticked.

After struggling over the hills  with a stomach ache and headache, arriving at Amy’s house, taking a break, and eating a real breakfast was just what I needed.  I knew something was off. Unknowingly, Amy and fellow hiker, Young Gun, put the pieces together… Continue Reading “Ticked.”

New York – The Trail Magic State

After grabbing a quick breakfast, BigFoot, Mantis, and I headed back towards the trail. We quickly got a hitch, and our driver even left us each with a bottle of lemon tea. Thanks, man. It was perfect on top of that steep climb from… Continue Reading “New York – The Trail Magic State”

Rocksylvania and New Jersey

Finishing our Marathon Week Challenge was such a relief, and Beverly and Jo couldn’t have picked a better time to visit us. We ended our day, hopped into the car, and headed to a motel in nearby Reading. The shower, as always, was glorious.… Continue Reading “Rocksylvania and New Jersey”

On Your Mark. Get Set. GO!!!

It was 2 in the afternoon when we finally put our packs on after our amazing break and headed back to the AT. We had an 11 mile half day planned to get us back in the groove. The next day we would begin… Continue Reading “On Your Mark. Get Set. GO!!!”

Shenandoah National Park, Harpers Ferry, and Washington DC

We awoke a little later than usual at the shelter, but it was ok. It was a five mile walk into Waynesboro, VA with the rest of the day off. We made it to the highway and hitched a ride into a Ruby Tuesday… Continue Reading “Shenandoah National Park, Harpers Ferry, and Washington DC”

Meet Virginia

After our Trail Days excursion, we dropped back 70 miles into Tennessee where we had left The AT. After 3 days off, it was time to get back to it. Over four days, we hiked the 70 mile stretch that brought us into Damascus.… Continue Reading “Meet Virginia”
