    After giving it a lot of thought I’ve decided to put my hike on hiatus. Thank you all for joining me on my journey. To be continued…

      _, This kind of sickness might have a bearing on anyone at any age and make you sense helpless in look for gout suffering relief.

    There should be more places like the Doyle in Duncannon. Cheap, no-frills rooms, and good food. I ate so much I feel drunk with food.

      Foooood Cooomaaa! (Said in a cookie-monster-esque voice, I think.)

      Duncannon is indeed an oasis. So is Port Clinton, unfortunately a little too close to Duncannon to be a real lifesaver.

    How better to celebrate hiking over half the #AT than to eat half a gallon of ice cream, an AT tradition. I had mint chocolate-chip. Yum.

      You should be across the Susquehanna by now. Peter’s Mtn. Shelter is very fancy if you stop there. Congratulations.

    From sweltering heat to thunderstorms. The AT always keeps you on your toes.

    Thank you state of Maryland for putting up a campground with bathrooms and showers. Perfect place to wait out another 95+ day.

      Too bad it wasn’t open when I was there.

    I can now confirm that a journey of 1,000 miles DOES begin with a single step. And then is followed by a couple million more.

      Amazing where your steps have taken you in this journey. Congrats on making the first thousand!
      Love, Jan and Mark

    Shenandoah NP restaurants are killin’ me. Sunday: hike .5 off trail, no power. Today: closed between lunch and dinner.

      Restaurants! Thought you were supposed to be surviving on freeze-dried, twigs, bark, nuts and berries. Restaurants!

      • Gibbs 7:51 pm on July 12, 2012 Permalink | Reply

        If they’re going to put restaurants along the AT, I’m gonna use them. My biggest problem was I had planned my re-supply around not needing dinner for those days.

      Are you dodging cars on the Skyline Drive?

      • Gibbs 7:52 pm on July 12, 2012 Permalink | Reply

        I was, but no longer. Out of SNP, and soon to be in West Virginia.

    Just had a great picnic lunch with friends Blake and Carrie who live nearby. Glad they could come out.

    Today in “Things that could kill me.” Saw two bears and two rattlesnakes. A new record! In Waynesboro now, where cars are a bigger threat.

    • Dad 9:27 pm on July 5, 2012 Permalink | Reply

      Were they green? (The snakes, not the bears.) The ones I saw up in PA were bright green. And big!

      • Gibbs 10:50 am on July 6, 2012 Permalink | Reply

        The first one was, the 2nd one was all black. Thought it was a rat snake at first, good thing I checked.

    No fireworks for me yesterday, but I did have buffalo chicken and rice with turkey bacon. That’s kinda patriotic, right?

    • Dad 1:50 pm on July 5, 2012 Permalink | Reply

      You killed a buffalo! My god, how could you? That is so unpatriotic!
