Brown Fork Shelter.jpg

Brown Fork Shelter.jpg, originally uploaded by Hikingfool.

Well as a tribute to the Red Couch, my favorite blog, I will post 10 things I learned today.

1. God is good even during the toughest days.
2. I am 16 miles farther than I was yesterday. this was my toughest day!
3. I am 150.9 miles from Springer & 2025.3 miles from Katadin.
4. I hate web walking, which means your the first one on the trail clearing all the cobwebs that were formed last night.
5. I hate getting out of my sleeping bag in the morning.
6. But I like hiiking in the coolness of the morning.
7. Loving Pastor Broggi's sermons on the book of Hebrews.
8. Having my first doubts on being able to complete the trail.
9. Been chewing the same piece of gum for the past 13 days. I will easily make 2 weeks.
10. And the greatest of them all...I get to see Amee in less than 8 days! I miss her sooo much!

So far it is just me in the shelter & the mice! Will have the oil out tonight.

Cheoah Bald was beautiful once you got to the top! Thanks Bob.

Hi from mom,
First doubts huh, you are almost under 2000 miles to go I know you can do it. I know amee misses you to since she was here yesterday, we all miss you actually even though I didn't see you everyday anyway. Same gum for two weeks yuk!Don't give up just think 8 more days, amee, zero day to have fun, then back on the trail! I am so proud of what you accomplished so far. 16 miles today awesome!! You are still in my prayers daily!!
Love you, Mom

Hi again from Kimbra,

If anyone can do it Jeremiah, you can! No doubting yourself and no stopping now. Eight more days and you get to hold your sweet Amee again! Then back to the trail! Get a new piece of gum...maybe that will help!

Take care Jeremiah!

You can do it, the daily miles are increasing and the total is decreasing.
hang in there and DRIVE ON

If you ever feel like ditching... it is ok... but give it some time. When you feel like that, get to the next town, take a 0 mile day or two and just relax. If you don't miss the trail by then... well... 2000 miles is a long way to go if you aren't having fun.
