My Favorite Part of the Appalachian Trail

It’s been three months since I stood on top of Katahdin in a dream-like state after completing my thru-hike.  I can’t deny saying that I’m really still processing everything, and the adjustment back into day to day life hasn’t necessarily been easy. To most…

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,…

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…

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…

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….

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…

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…

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…

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…

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….

Trail Days Getaway

Excited for our Trail Days adventure, we exited The Roan Highlands and walked a brisk 2.5 miles into the Roan Mountain / Elk Park gap. As planned, our friend Pat rolled in at 9:00 to pick us up for a day on Lake Norris….

Hot Springs, Erwin, and The Roan Highlands

With a beautiful view of the sunrise from the ridge, we said goodbye to magical Max Patch. Over the next two days, we hiked the final 20 miles into Hot Springs, NC. In the previous week, we had hiked over 100 miles without stopping…
