Been here once, years ago. Guess I'm gonna start again. But at my walking rate, a mile or two a day, it looks like several years effort. Hope to be on the real trail before then.

So, starting at Springer
1/2/20017 - 13.8 miles for total of 16.6
1/1/2017 - 2.8 miles

I had a meltdown and wasn't logging in or anything - even considered just quitting SP for a while. Then I just snapped back. Sorry to have disappeared like that. No way to do catch-up so I will just start logging again.

Well according to walking4fun they restarted me on the AT on September 25th, so I guess I'll go with that. I finished the 3rd AT on October 2nd! As of October 14th, I'm at 102.5 miles on the 4th AT. Yikes!

I finished my 3rd attempt on the Appalachian trail on October 2nd. I think it restarted me on Oct 2 but with about 30 extra miles because I show I'm at 43.99 miles but it shows over 76 miles. I'll get figured out yet. Love the area around Elkhart park and Roan mountain. Roan mountain is a place I go every summer to the rhododendron gardens. Love it

Great job y'all! I'm so anxious to get down with my 3rd AT. I'm doing the Tahoe Rim also. Once I finish it I'll start the AT for the 4th time even if my 3rd trip isn't complete. I'm getting closer to done.

Start with small steps and momentum will build. Celebrate moving in the direction of increased happiness now! With a plan and persistence moving towards your goals all things are possible! ♥ From Ask-Angels.com
Much Love & Hugs, Ramona

Most of my steps are behind a lawn-mower, lol. They don't add up as quickly but it is a better calorie burn.

You're doing great. I'm at mile 1928.94 on the Appalachian trail. I decided to do the Tahoe Rim Trail until I finished this trip then I'll do my 4th AT on the walking 4 fun page

Great job! On July 30th, I was at 1866.98 miles. I haven't looked up yesterday's stats yet.

So since July 24th, 2011 I have now walked 6,244.81 miles as of July 30th. I'm just stunned.

You've really walked a lot too. Probably more than I could ever dream of! emoticon emoticon

Great job! Most of my walking is back and forth through the house. If it cools off before dark I may get in a couple short walks with my dog. The heat index at 10:30am was already 108! Yucky!

Yes the gatorade supposedly replaces electrolytes. I like it because it's almost like I can feel it working. I notice a major difference in how it feels going down compared to just water. Plus I feel pepped up. At any rate it seems to help and I have some on hand now.

I'm glad you know what not to do! I guess the Gatorade replaces electrolytes?

No matter what, I'm thankful you are ok.

I rarely sweat. I drink a lot of water but instead of sweating I just overheat. My water intake has increased with this heat we're having. My Dad and one brother sweat buckets but I barely sweat if I do then I get sick and weak. Maybe it's because I'm diabetic? I don't know but I have to really watch it in this weather. Like last Wednesday I was fine, didn't sweat because there was a nice breeze and then all of the sudden I started sweating and sweating. I barely made it in the house. Peeled off my clothes literally they were soaked which is unusual for me. I was so weak. I drank four glasses of water. Got a cold rag and wiped my arms and legs down. Laid down with a cold rag on my face. About 30 minutes later, I texted my son and asked if he could stop and get a cold gatorade for me. That helped quite a bit. I have two bottles on hand. I've just never been one to sweat. We'll be in triple digits for temps by week's end so I'm staying in as much as possible right now. Just trying to recover. That heat exhaustion on Wednesday, having to get out in the heat Thursday for a doctor's appointment followed by a major migraine on Friday just knocked me for a loop.

Great job on the AT! I didn't even look at my numbers for yesterday. I'm way off course right now.

Start with small steps and momentum will build. Celebrate moving in the direction of increased happiness now! With a plan and persistence moving towards your goals all things are possible! ♥ From Ask-Angels.com
Much Love & Hugs, Ramona

Are you remembering to stay hydrated? Drinking lots of water in this weather is very important.

Are you sweating? If you're not sweating, you are also not drinking enough.

I hope you feel better soon.

I'm recovering from heat exhaustion. I overheated big time on Wednesday. Then Thursday I had to get out in the heat again for a doctor's appointment and was going to run errands. Only got one done and told my son I couldn't handle it to take me home. Then Friday I get hit with a terrible migraine. So I'm still down for the count.

As of last night I am at mile post 1790.28.

You're doing great!

Bummer on the weather when you stayed with your brother :(

Yes, it's been so hot here that walking a 2nd time is just impossible. We don't know why, but this year I was hit with heat stroke. Sigh, cooler weather will be here eventually.

It was nice to finally finish the PCT again emoticon

I'll be glad to get through this 3rd virtual hike of the AT so I can do it online. I think that'll be so cool. Plus a lot easier! Maybe I'll be seeing places I've been. If I don't get off my butt and walk more (please let it cool down a tad so I can safely go out) I'd get done but more days like the last couple and I'll be still on this trail next year!

Great job on getting to the North Carolina state line! It's beautiful country up there. Unfortunately it rained the entire week I was at my brother's that we had planned to get out and do things - his only week off the three weeks I was there :( so we were both sad.

Appalachian Trail, Stage 1 (0.2 miles)



This arch marks the start of the Approach Trail, hidden just behind the Visitor Center. I know what you're thinkingthis isn't the AT! Ahh, but it is! Because the abbreviation for Approach Trail is AT! Coincidence? I think not!

Back when the AT was first created, it started at Mount Oglethorpe and this section was the actual Appalachian Trail leading to Springer Mountain. It's historic! It's legendary! And we're gonna use to get to the Appalachian Trail!
