And I took some pictures. Check 'em out. I was out for about 6 weeks on the Appalachian trail. Did just over 500 miles. I started on Katahdin in Millinocket, ME. The northern terminus of the AT. I made it to Rutland, VT before I started running out of money and getting bored. I took a train to NYC from Rutland, hung out for a day and proceeded on a train to Philadelphia where I met my brother. I am now drinking excessively and fixing up his house before he sells it.

Here are some good ones:

Breaking through the cloud line coming down Mt. Washington. This was my favorite part of the trip. Such a strange experience.

Camping on some mountain we weren't supposed to camp on. Mt. Washington in the background covered in clouds.

I walked barefoot for the last 100 miles. Partly boredom, partly because my boots were pissing me off.

I don't feel like going through the pictures from Rutland, NYC, and Philly and post my favorites. I don't think the pictures are even working, so **** it. Check 'em all out. It may be fun for you, maybe not.


Cheers.

Thanks! That is the next idea, BAMF. If I decided to do more hiking on this trail. I really want to get out west, into the larger mountains.
