White Blaze

When you see a white blaze like this you know you’re on the Appalachian Trail.  I believe this was taken in Duncannon, PA.

Today I walked two miles off the trail (one way) to go to Walmart to buy food. Then I walked a little further to McDonald’s to sit next to an electrical outlet and charge my phone.  I’m trying to cut back on my time away from the trail and one thing I could do is charge my phone less often.  What would you think if I posted to my blog less often?

Got a hiker shuttle to Comfort Inn. I need to do a resupply.  Met a couple new hikers, Sew Happy and Pete.  They decided to get a ride to a hotel. Cookie, who I’ve been hiking with for several days also decided to go to town to take care of a problem with her backpack.
