Hey There Fellow Hiker!

Wow!!! Your doing FANTASTIC! 54 miles in----they're really adding up!

I FINALLY hit my 600 miles, as of today (Monday)!!! I was pushing for that, before the end of Dec.! One goal accomplished!

Stay warm on the trail and watch for the slippery spots!

Have a "GREAT HIKING DAY"! It's beautiful to hike in the snow----like a winter wonderland here! :-)

Hi Ax! It's a lot of fun for me to have a hiking pal, too! You keep me motivated! I'm sorry I didn't walk today, but I'll definitely be back on the trail tomorrow! I've got to break in my new boots! ;-) Thank you for them! :-)

Hi GF,

Your really doing GREAT! I can't believe how fast your miles are gaining! I think you'll be walking next to me in know time!

Your timing is right on! I figure your average to be around 1 mile in 20 minutes! That is GREAT!

That is really neat that you started the trail at that exact time! I never would have thought at that time, I would have a "Walking Buddy" :-) It's sooo...nice to have someone to share the trail with----"Thank You" for joining me! :-)

Since it's getting chilly on the trail now, I thought you could trade in your sneakers for these hikers! They will keep your feet much warmer!!!

emoticon

"Happy Trails" :-)

Ax

Thanks for the Orange Dgilbride! I can really use those carbs this morning because I'm getting ready to head out shortly.

* I just posted a picture of Low Gap Shelter, forgot to do that yesterday. After a while, all these shelters start to look the same, but each new one is as welcoming as the last! They do have some pretty neat names!

I'm glad you're enjoying those veggies Ax. I enjoyed some of those veggies you gave me last night..but I had a bit of a stressful day today and ate horribly..all the wrong foods and now feel like a knot on a log! You'd think this would teach me to eat the right foods at all times, wouldn't you? Maybe the memory of how I feel right now will stick with me for a few days anyway! If I eat anything more today, I'm eating from the veggie tray..so TY sooo much! I hope to continue on the trail in just a little while! :-)

Not much snow today....just cold weather. And, it' raining in Tempe, so I was lucky to get my miles in early in the morning.

Blood Mountain Shelter (1934)—Sleeps 8. Privy. Located atop the highest peak on the
A.T. in Georgia (4,461 feet), this historic two-room stone structure was last refurbished
in 1981. No water or firewood available; no fires permitted. Northbounders
can get water from a stream 0.3 mile north of Bird Gap or on a blue-blazed side trail
at Slaughter Gap, 0.9 mile from the shelter. Southbounders can get water at Neels
Gap or at a spring located on the blue-blazed trail to Byron Reece Memorial, 0.2 mile
from where the trail joins the A.T., 2.4 miles south of Neels Gap. Overuse could close
the shelter to hikers in the future.

Blood Mountain—According to tales of the Creek and Cherokee, a battle between the
two nations on the slopes of the mountain left so many dead and wounded that the
ground ran red with blood, which inspired the name.

Blood Mountain is the most visited
spot on the A.T. south of Clingmans Dome, and the impact of more than
40,000 visitors a year has taken its toll. Vandalism in and around the shelter has
been a chronic problem. In an effort to counter visitor impact, fires have been banned
along a 3.3-mile section between Slaughter Gap and Neels Gap.

Wood’s Hole Shelter (1998)—Sleeps 7. Privy. Located 0.4 mile west on a blue-blazed

Hi Ax, You are so funny! lol I'm sorry I haven't been hiking. I hope to get back to it soon. Been under the weather and haven't been food tracking or anything. I've been doing nothing but eating and sleeping and gaining weight. I'm feeling a good bit better and am going to start tracking food again today and hopefully be walking by tomorrow. If not, I'm going to force myself to get back to it by the next day. I'm not breaking our pact! :-)

* Edited my minutes because I didn't realize I never walked the .2 miles to get to Springer Mtn. Shelter although it's reflected in my total miles. I did walk it a minute ago. I don't want to cheat myself out of any inch of this walk!

Thanks so much for your nice comment! I'm thrilled to have done 1.5 today. Between you and Ax, I feel a ton of support! Ax gave me the suggestion to walk at least 1/2 mile per day and that's what I intend to do..of course, I plan to do more. But I'm making that my minimum requirement, unless for health reasons, it would be impossible. I'll be happy with a mile a day if that is what it takes to reach my goal though! If you ever make your mind up to walk the actual trail, I'd love to hear all about it!

One mile per day is still better than no miles per day.

8 miles down, your doing good. About an average of 1 mile a day???

Slow and steady to start, but remember no excuses that will hold you back.

First, I would like to thank AXREAH for all her help and motivation in starting this thread and inspiring my virtual walk along the AT. Not only am I going to do an online journal on this thread, but I'm doing a personal journal of my walk here at home, using a spiral notebook. With each entry, I'm making changes in the way I record my walk. I'm sure changes will continue until I find what works for me, so please bear with me as I will probably work with my online journal in the same way. Here is an update of where I started, until today.
