Pressure D - AT - Jul 2, 2013 - Day 83 Mile 1113 Alec Kennedy Shelter
I said "No way!" to the "4 state Challenge" but "Hell yeah!" to the "Half Gallon Challenge!" The "4 State Challenge" is a 43 mile hike all in a 24 hour period. You start in Virginia, do all of West Virginia & Maryland, and then finish in Pennsylvania! Most hikers who try this challenge start at 3 or 4 in the morning & finish at 10 or 11 at night. Most require a zero day or two afterwards to recover from the challenge. Walk-Hard & Banjo both attempted it and I haven't seen either one since. Banjo had to get off the trail because he ran out of money but Walk-Hard is either in a town recovering or is ahead of me. I chose the "Half Gallon Challenge" because I know what I'm good at! The "Half Gallon Challenge" comes just after the official half-way point of the AT. The challenge is at Pine Grove Furnace General Store. You have to eat a half gallon of ice cream in one sitting before it melts. It was a piece of cake! I skipped breakfast & hiked 10 miles to get there. And Stuff and I sat down together and I was done when he was only half finished! I left there with Flax Seed who I had first met 6 years earlier when we climbed Katahdin together. He has successfully thru- hiked 2 times: NoBo in 2006 & SoBo in 2009. We had a nice talk through most of the day but I left him at about the 20 mile mark of the day. I ended up hiking 25 miles & the last 4 were over most difficult terrain. When "Awol" guide mentions a "rock maze", you know you're in for trouble! The trail went through a jumble of big boulders. I reached camp at 8:00pm!Game on! Pressure D
