August 19, 2017 4:54 PM Total Miles: 2038 Day 140 Slept in till about 6:30. Getting outside my sleeping bag seemed impossible. Way too cold. Today was an easy terrain day. Flat flat flat plus 2 baby hills. I can do that. I can totally do that. It started to rain on us off and… Continue reading Day 141: Our last nero.
August 17, 2017 8:14 PM Total Miles: 2016 Day 138 Started this morning out with heavy fog. Dang it. It felt like rain was creeping in since we could not see around us. Today was loaded with gradual ups and steep, rocky downs. The trail is rocky, muddy, and rooty (Lets pretend that's a word)… Continue reading Day 139: 2000 miles down and 190 to go!
August 15, 2017 7:34 PM Total Miles: 1980 Day 136 Slept marvelously last night. I absolutely love my tent. The temperature was cold this morning. Its so strange being further up north for the summer.

August 9, 2017 8:56 PM Total Miles: 1892 Day 130 Another bed that I could of taken another zero in. Half of me dreaded getting up and the other half was ready. Lets knock this out. Lets get to Maine. We were ready to go around 9:30 but Gorham's willingness to give hikers a hitch… Continue reading Day 131: Some days don’t go as planned and that’s okay.
August 7, 2017 4:41 PM Total Miles: 1870 Day 128 I am not sure how to even start this post. Today was by far the hardest day on the trail for me. Physically, mentally, emotionally. We woke up from Madison hut around 6 am and put off putting on our wet, frigid clothes until we… Continue reading Day 129: “I am really emotional right now!”
