Appalachian Trail Map

It's about that time again

The trip....

March 18 to mid-August: Appalachian Trail
Mid-August to December: South America (Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina)

I'll start out this journal with the question I most often get....

"Why I hike"

Most everyone I know thinks I'm a little bit crazy. It's impossible to answer the question of "why I hike". You just have to do it to understand it, but I think this quote does a pretty good job of explaining it. It's from Johnathon Ley's CDT journal and is a quote of what someone told him the first day he started hiking the PCT.

The first day I started hiking the Pacific Crest Trail in 1999, someone told me that the trail had ruined them. At the time, I thought it was a cute thing to say. It didn't occur to me as a warning, I didn't realize that I was walking the same path. I've often told people that the hardest part of hiking any long trail was taking that first step. I later found out, that the hardest part was actually taking the last step

Appalachian Trail

The Appalachian Trail (A.T.) is more than 2,175-mile long footpath stretching through 14 eastern states from Maine to Georgia. Conceived in 1921 and first completed in 1937, it traverses the wild, scenic, wooded, pastoral, and culturally significant lands of the Appalachian Mountains. Learn more:
