... fun on the trail. Most of it was just a lovely forest trail, but there were parts like a Krypton Factor assault course with a succession of balance beams that allow us to navigate over streams and more marshy parts easily. We see chipmunks, squirrels, a small snake (that I nearly stood on as I was at the front!), a mouse, and a frog along the way. Unfortunately, or fortunately depending on how you look at it, no bears or moose; though we were given strict instructions on what to ...
Since the center of the 100 mile wilderness, I continued to hike with the guys from OSU, or "The Summah Boys" as they signed themselves in the shelter journal entries. It was a nice change from my prior solitude, and the company helped pass the days a little faster. We all continued to get along well, and would share diminished resources with each other such as stove fuel and water treatment chemicals. Like I said in the previous entry, our original goal was to make ...

I had hung yesterday's clothes up in the shelter to dry, but with the rain all night and humidity it was pointless, they were almost wetter. Same with my shoes, even after removing the insoles and hanging them, I could barely notice a difference. A northbounder I stayed with the next ...
Katahdin is the native american word for "great mountain." It is the highest mountain in Maine, and the day with the most elevation change on the entire Appalachian trail (i.e. lots of climbing). The rangers who were discouraging my climb claimed it as the hardest mountain on the AT, one of the reasons most hikers begin their journey northbound from Georgia. The mountain is in Baxter State Park, a huge parcel of land donated to the state of Maine by ...
