I stepped off from Amicalola Falls on March 5th and summited Katahdin on Sept. 22nd.
By the time I got to Maine my pack weight was around 25 lbs fully loaded for about 4 days.
It was an amazing trip and I have been back for only a week now but already I miss the
trail and trail life. Regular life is just so dull. Im planning on doing the Oregon Coast trail
next summer as the one thing I learned on the AT is that 6 months of thru hiking is lonely
and not my wifes favorite thing for me to do. Maybe I will take on the PCT in 2023.
One other thing I learned is that you dont need a ton of gear to be safe and compfy. I sent
home 3 boxes of stuff during my AT thru hike and didnt miss any of it. Until next hike, happy
