11 August 2012

Almost left without posting these awesome photos of my feet.

This is what Hiking 20+ mile days can do to them.

I call this collection:  The unveiling.

A beautiful view after a grueling 3 mile hike today into town!

11 August 2012

Hello Friends~!
I am currently sitting in the library at Pawling, NY. 
Mile 1442 complete and have around 750 miles to go. 
Today has been a frustrating day so far.  The group I'm in has been walking in the rain for a few days, we had no dry clothes to wear, we were running out of food, and the total moral of the group was slowly diminishing.  We thought if we'd get into a town to take a shower, do laundry, and have a good meal, we would feel better, but it has become a challenge to do all those things. 

Have no fear!

This is how it works I suppose.  We've eaten, are all at the library, going to do laundry, and tonight we will all take hobo showers at the park.  Success!

Much has happened since 01 July 2012.

I made it to the mental half-way point in Harpers Ferry, WV.

Went into Washington, DC with some hiking buddies.

Made it to the actual half-way point.

Was almost attacked by some prehistoric insect.

Stayed in the smallest room ever at The Doyle in Duncannon, PA.

Went to jail.  I should say...stayed in jail at Palmerton, PA.

Made breakfast in the kitchen of a bar (trail magic!) called the Beer Stein, in Wind Gap, PA.

Saw a SOBO play his didgeridoo.

Walked across the most awesome foot bridge.

 and much much more.  It isn't often that I  come across a computer so I apologize for the lack of updates. 

Thank you all for the continued support!
