Only 10 degrees today for a high. Still got my walk in though, just not a long one. 2 miles.

I love the sound of this. I had to start using the treadmill since my knees can't take the road and I've just not been motivated since then. So, here I am 3 months later and needing to start over. I've always wanted to hike the AT, so this sounds like fun. Guess I'll be bringing up the rear so to speak!

Only 27 degrees on the trail today. Still in Georgia but by Friday I will be at the highest elevation in the state! I love reading the journals of other hikers who write about what they've seen and experienced and the people they meet along the way. I guess after a day of hiking it's nice to rest and reflect on the days journey by recording it.

I started in Georgia and am now in Pennsylvania. 1232.5 miles in so far. 951.5 miles to go! I love my fitbit and I've really been enjoying this walk. Keep on walking emoticon

This year is all about me and my quest to unload this extra person I have been hauling around.

Land's End to John O'Groats goes from the SW tip of England to the NE tip of Scotland. It's about a 1,000 mile walk, depending on the route you choose (there are many, many different routes). If you want to follow the same route i'm taking, Google Mark Moxon, and you will find the route he used.

Today I made it to Gooch Mountain Shelter, GA. A whole 16 miles! But that's only because I added my miles since Jan. 1st. (my adventure-my rules emoticon )
I hear that there are bears in the area so I'll be tying my food up in the trees.

The hike you guys are on,I'm guessing it's from England to Scotland, sounds like a blast!

3 miles today on my way from the Land's End to John O'Groats. Don't know where that is, but the name is interesting. That and I hope I don't get lost, I hate to ask directions to a place I forget everytime I remember where I am going.

I don't have a FitBit. I was just going to use the trail map and see where I am as I add up my miles. You know, I've used pedometers in the past but I just like looking at my fitness using miles. Seems I own 4 pedometers and none of them seem accurate. I hate wasting money.
Is that what you are doing? How far are you?

hi, I'm Terrie. I chose to start the App. Trail today. Starting in Georgia (I want to imagine that I really am doing it and it's WAY TOO COLD in Maine right now!)
I started Jan. 1st tracking my miles so this afternoon I'll figure out where I am. This is going to be fun! emoticon
