Back on the AT

Friday April 20, 2018

A couple of days ago I decided that if I left at 1am this morning I could be at Max Patch trailhead around 11am to get a hike in today before meeting my girlfriends tomorrow. So of we go at 1am.

I have Mom and Berkley with me. That is Mom in the above picture, way on down the trail. The day was beautiful. It was in the 50’s and very sunny, with a steady wind. This is Mom’s kind of weather and she loved it.

It felt great to be back on the trail. I met Ktom, Steve, Grasshopper and Treeker all thru hikers. There were also a few section hikers and many day hikers out enjoying the trail.

My plans for this upcoming week are up in the air. The weather looks HORRIBLE starting Sunday night. Since I don’t have to hike in the rain I just may choose not to.

Stay tuned…

    1. HOOTIE!!! So good to hear from you. Trail life sure does get into your blood. So glad to hear you are going to finish Long Trail. The northern half is harder than the southern half so be prepared for it.
      I’ve been following DISCOUNT on Facebook and have seen some pictures of the van that he build. It looks great.
      I’ve seen SOULFLOWER twice since finishing the trail. We plan to hike the Northville-Placid trail in August and I’m giving some serious thought to starting the Colorado trail with her in June.
