I was the 40th thru hiker to sign in at the ATC headquarters this year.

Sweeper

First day of their flip flop, so they didn’t have trail names!

My friend Debbie lives near the trail in PA, so she decided to come check out the trail for an afternoon.

Half way, well the marker from last year anyway.

It’s hiker tradition to eat a half gallon of ice cream at the half way mark.

Rocker made a good effort, but failed like the others!

That ice cream never stood a chance.

Snow White and 40oz

Bob, cleaning up the trail.

Dutch, 40oz, and Rocker enjoying a beer at the Doyle Hotel.

Miss Vickie knows all.

Miss Vickie and Pat

Almost There, Bowdin and Kayleigh.

40oz enjoying a book on our day off at the Doyle.

Gaucha and Sweetie.

Tink getting some advice from the “worlds greatest hiker” Dutch.

Yes, the rocks in PA are really that bad.

Shadowfax chillin’ at the 501 Shelter.

The Pinnacle.

Knifes Edge.

Blue Bird

Earl Grey

Pair #2, done.

I chose not to swim in this beautiful lake.

Wazi

Moon Pie and Duzy

A little (actually a lot) of trail magic provided by our new friend Bunyun.

Roaring Lion and Bunyun enjoying a cigar and whiskey by the camp fire.

Snow White will hang anywhere.

The shoes Bunyan summited in last year.

Mouse

Wandered into Unionville, NY on Memorial Day and was greated by a parade.

This wonderful family invited Roaring Lion, Mouse and myself to their Memorial Day BBQ.

Bill, preparing dinner at The Mayor’s House

Jaba

Building a new privy.

Boardwalk through the swamp.

Heading north.

Mountain Laurel.

Lil’ Buddha

Actuary

Water break.

A much deserved swim.

Snow White and Cool Tool.

Snow White, lost in her own thoughts.

Switchback enjoying some dinner.

Snow White was making me so nervous!

Now you know why I was so nervous! Snow White falls at least once a day.

Dusting off.

Red Tail and Freedumb.

Maria, a wonderful lady who opens her home to hikers.

Someone decided to stick an old tub over a beautiful natural spring.

Out for a quick paddle on Upper Goose Pond.

One of my favourite photos ever taken of me, compliments of Snow White.

Beans

Usually we have to dodge traffic and run across the highway, but this one they built a nice bridge.

Cookie Monster

Grocery shopping with our packs is a pain and gets us a lot of strange looks.

Gandalf and Shadowfax

Walkway in Vermont

Switchback trying to get a view from the fire tower.

Compliments of “Vermud”

Self portrait with her trusty Stick Pik.

A bridge was torn down and we decided not to take the 3 mile detour.

A missing bridge means rock hopping or wading through the water.

Grabbing some water from a very cool water source.

On top of “The Lookout” cabin.

How we find our way.

Hit & Miss, the first south bounders of the year.

Short n’ Sweet (along with her husband Greybeard) provide trail magic to hikers everyday. They also were kind enough to host Snow White and myself for a night. We were treated to showers, laundry and an amazing pesto pasta dinner!

Pine Monkey
