The End of a Journey: The 100-Mile Wilderness and Sumitting Katahdin

We returned to the trail by 1 o’clock and happily entered Maine’s 100-Mile Wilderness. We couldn’t believe how far we had come or how few days we had left on the trail. We knew nothing would stop us from completing the final 115 miles,… Continue Reading “The End of a Journey: The 100-Mile Wilderness and Sumitting Katahdin”

Nearing the End

We woke up early at White Wolf Inn feeling some of the affects of perhaps one too many rounds from last night’s 2000 mile celebration. Thankfully, we just had to walk downstairs to a fantastic breakfast and hot coffee. After eating, we returned upstairs… Continue Reading “Nearing the End”

13 States Down, 1 To Go!!!

We managed to pull ourselves away from White Mtn Hostel after our 3 night stay by 11 a.m. During yesterday’s zero, I was really struggling to get the motivation to finish these last three weeks of hiking. Fortunately, all of those feelings of self… Continue Reading “13 States Down, 1 To Go!!!”

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”
