Last year

Me, Shoelace, Cookie, Captain Jack

Last year at this time I was doing some hiking on the Appalachian Trail. I quit after 200 miles. I felt like I failed. I just heard from Captain Jack. He went back out and did a section in New York. It makes me want to get back out there and give it another go. Maybe next year. 

Some posts from the trail:

In my tent this morning I heard what I thought was a huge buzzing insect flying by. But this sound was deeper than a buzz; it was more of a thrum. Later, while sitting at the picnic table I heard the same sound. I looked up to see a little bird hover for a moment then zip out of sight.
