The Appalachian Trail starts at Springer Mountain in Georgia, mile 0. This photo was taken at mile 1186. I’ve hiked 163 miles since April 21st.
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.
Spent two days in Duncannon, PA out of solidarity with Cookie, another hiker. She was exhausted and needed a break. She also swapped out her hammock for a tent and got new trekking poles. My gear is doing fine so far.
Saw this building while walking around Duncannon.

Yesterday Survivor took a bad fall and hurt his wrist. He’s taking a couple days off.
