Hungus on the LT in 2007

Preparing to Head up to VT

I am planning on doing a section of the Long Trail from Middlebury Gap north to Rt 118 Oct 4th thru the 14th. I decided that it would be fun to keep a journal again since I will be alone and probably not have much else to do in the evenings. I chose this section because I am trying to clean up miles to complete the Long Trail. In 2007 and 2012 I thru hiked the Appalachian trail. The AT is co-aligned with the LT from the MA border to Killington so I have already done those miles....twice. I also joined two friends, The Hiking Viking and Toad, for a southbound section in 2008. I met them at Middlebury Gap and hiked south to Manchester Center.

This hike I plan to get back on at Middlebury Gap and head north. I am looking forward to some cool crisp fall weather and am very excited to get back on the trail. Honestly I have not been out too much since Pace and I summited Katahdin on September 25th last year. This will be my grand return to the forest. Hopefully I can still climb those rugged 4000 ft VT mountains, I am in no where near the shape I was in a year ago. I will get to climb Mt Ellen, Camels Hump, and Mt. Mansfield. I'll check back in when my hammock is hanging somewhere in VT.
