An Old Dog on the Trail – Where your brain says you are 25 and your body says “Are you kidding, your 80!”

An Old Dog on the Trail – Where your brain says you are 25 and your body says “Are you kidding, your 80!”              In 2017, my daughter told me she and her husband were going to Katahdin, Maine.  I had nothing “doing,” yeah, why…

Time And Mileage

My mind says I can do so much mileage in a certain amount of time. My body says to me, “kiss my ass”. Honestly, my mind made me try, but the body is not going along with that idea. The reality of the trail…

Port Clinton and Cabela’s

We took a 10 mile hike from Eagles Nest Shelter to Port Clinton, PA after discovering Cabela’s Will shuttle you in to Hamburg, Pa from the US Post Office (among other places) in Port Clinton. The trail was heavily mined with rocks and mud…

First Re-Supply……

Day 3 – No Room At The Inn

Grey Hair and the Appalachian Trail

Grey Hair and the Appalachian Trail  I never thought I was vain…..until I had grey hair.  Why does this happen, why?  You lose your eye sight (I need readers for every damn thing), you skin looks like it came off of a chicken and…
