Welcome back for another trail update! Day 70: Campsite at mm1550.7 to Cheshire, MA – 28.2mi Despite the big rigs whooshing by throughout the night on the nearby highway, I slept well.

Welcome back for another trail update! Day 63: Pochuck Mountain Shelter to Campsite at mm1381.3 – 29.8mi Because I got in to the shelter a little early last night (8pm instead of 9), I got to sleep a bit earlier as well, which made getting up that much easier. I was on the trail just …

Weekly Trail Update #7: Day 43 – 49

Welcome back for another trail update! Day 43: Zero Day in Waynesboro I took today off, and boy did I need it. The last 100 or so miles have been the most grueling of the trail between the unseasonably hot days and extremely strenuous terrain, and I was fading fast. By the end, my legs …

Welcome back for another trail update! Day 36: Johns Spring Shelter to Troutville, VA – 18.2mi I finally had a night without rain and my tent was able to mostly dry out. My sleeping bag was still a bit damp as I packed up, but I knew I’d have the chance to hang it up …

Welcome back for another trail update! Day 29: Chestnut Knob Shelter to random spot @ mm594 – 24.8mi As I mentioned before, the shelter last night was great. Although it was windy outside, we felt none of it thanks to the closed door that kept things gust-free inside. I got up at about 6:15 and …

Welcome back for another trail update! Day 22: Abingdon Gap Shelter to Damascus, VA – 10.2mi After trudging 32 miles yesterday, I was so beat that I could barely stay awake long enough to finish my dinner. The shelter was full, but it was a nice night so I didn’t mind being outside and exposed. …

Welcome back for another trail update! Day 15: Jerry’s Cabin Shelter to Bald Mountain Shelter – 25.6mi Last night was another sub-freezing evening. It had started to snow as I was going to bed and although only about a quarter inch accumulated, the drop in temperature was difficult to manage. I felt like I didn’t …
