I apologize for my lack of frequent blogging. It hasn’t been as easy as I thought to come across computers.
Things are going great. I’ve been hiking really good mileage for just beginning, my biggest day being 23. I made it 204 miles in 14 days. Which isn’t great, but good for a start.
I lost Kat a little earlier than I anticipated. She hurt her ankle on day 7 and got off trail. It’s been hard to adjust to all the alone time, but I’ll make it just the same. I’m just now starting to feel like I’m making good friends out here. When a few people I haven’t seen in a few days made it into Gatlinburg (the tackiest place on earth), where I’m taking my first 0 day today, it felt like a family reunion or something. I was happy as hell to see their faces.
I’d love to give more detail, but there is a long wait of people who want to use the computer. So maybe later tonight, or early tomorrow morning I can report back proper.
Just to sum it all up for now, life is good and I’m going to Katahdin! Thanks for all the support.
I wrote some haiku poems the other day that I will share with ya’ll, in case you wanted to know just how crazy I am from spending so much time in my head. That’ll have to be tomorrow though. Don’t hold your breath or anything, they aren’t amazing.
