Well today I finallly made it back out on the trail. I got started about 1:30 pm, and hiked 15.5 miles to the rocky run shelter. I have now hiked 1027 miles from Springer mnt and have 1149.2 miles to Katahdin.

Today was a beautiful windy day with only 1 or 2 big ups then alot of flat rocky areas. i am going to be sore tomorrow.

Man, i dont know why i hiked 1011 miles of the at without hiking poles, because today I got to finally see what i was missing. They rock!

also today my streak of never sleeping alone on the trail will end tonight. I am the only one at this shelter. I was hoping to get another 1.8 miles to dahlen campgrounds that have toilets ut didnt have enough daylight. oh well, my body will thank me tomorrow for stoping where i did.

Today I saw 3 runners, 2 dogs and one snake. I am not up on my snake id, but i did take a pic of it. well now time for dinner.

God bless

I looked earlier but guess you were still hiking it makes me feel better when you can post something each day and I know you are safe, but I wish someone was with you to, at least you didn't get being scared of the dark from your mom or you wouldn't be on the trail. Love you Mom
