It’s been a while, I know. I’ve had a few of you ask when I’m blogging again and I’m really trying, I promise! I hope to get a few fun stories out soon. In the meantime, here are some highlights:
– I’ve walked 500 trail miles! It’s hard to believe. The miles have flown by.
– My life is different now, and my Health app has the stats to prove it.
– I saw the TINIEST TURTLE EVER and it might be my favorite moment on trail? Story to follow.
– I took my first extended break off trail: three days without hiking (a “triple zero”). It coincided with the smoke we experienced when I was in New York which was good timing. I saw some friends in Boston and Trina’s made me chili cheese corn dogs which were not on the menu but were the thing I most wanted!!! That was special. I also resupplied at Market Basket. If you know, you know.
– I hugged the biggest oak tree on the AT, the Dover Oak.
– It’s been kind of hot out, which is to say it hasn’t been hot at all but its been above 60 degrees which makes me grumpy. I’m not really sure how to cope besides going slower and complaining a lot. I also got a chilly towel which maybe is a morale boost.
– For real though, the weather has been so good the entire time I’ve been out here. I feel very lucky for that!
More later!! Thanks for following along!!!
