A 2,200 mile hike with my dog Nara.

Goodbye Maryland!

Aug 28, 2013

Maryland only has 40.9 trail miles. Nara and I made good mileage here as we raced towards Harper's Ferry to meet my parents for a much needed break from the trail.

1,166.9 miles hiked, 1,019.0 miles to go.

Interesting tables and data from the AT Conservancy.

Last year, 330 south-bounders started from Katahdin, 162 (49%) checked-in at Harper's Ferry, and 73 (22%) made it all the way to Springer in Georgia.

Big spider trying to join us for bed

Aug 28, 2013

Hiked into the evening, and when I set up my tent, I noticed this giant spider hanging out on the top of my tent while I was adjusting the ends. Normally I abhor violence, but I had to take this one out.
