Hey everyone! Still hiking on my wacky adventure! I am currently in Hot Springs, North Carolina, in the charming public library. Around mile 274 of the trail. Should reach mile 300 in 2-3 days! So exciting!
Spring is finally here, and we made it through the Smokey mountains just fine, I’m glad too because the first 2 weeks were just BLEAK with the fog, rain, ice and snow! Only problem is now there are biting bugs! rargh! I’m also a bit sick because hikers are a germy bunch. I’m also losing weight like woah, you are just working so hard your body just munches up everything extra.
I hope everyones doing good! I miss ya!
Mile 630, Pearisburg Virgina
Hey Everyone! I am still hiking! And having a much better time of it, no puking in the woods or anything, and it’s really really spring now so no more ice, snow or frozen mud. Delightful!
Meeting lots of cool people, and seeing lots of cool things. Wild ponies, bright orange newts, all sorts of birds, butterflies, snakes and lizards. Waterfalls mountains valleys. Very beautiful. It’s still difficult too of course, lately I’ve been hiking between 15 and 20 miles a day. But I keep going even though I fall down a lot. Haha there is a tradition on the trail where you get a trail name. Mine is Tumbleweed, because I fall down constantly.
Still like with any big goal, it doesn’t matter how many times you fall if you keep getting back up. And you can conquer mountains if you go one step at a time.
Hope everyone is doing great! miss you guys!
