Hit the trail Saturday (9/9) afternoon and rolled in to the trail-famous Doyle Hotel at 4pm today after a big lunch at an all-you-care-to-enjoy truck stop buffet. 35 miles in three days. 18 yesterday. a gradual start.

some sore feet. but on the whole a great time. Anna and Garrett are good guides. Coming down off Stony Mountain to Duncannon today was great seeing the Susquehanna River on all sides. The shelters have been beautiful and this hotel place is pretty homey, too. Met a barefoot hiker, Tyvek (trail name) who is raising money and awareness for Iraq Veterans. see www.thelongwalkhome.org.

More from Aunt Ruth and Uncle Gene's near Fairfield, PA, about 80 miles down the trail. Let the 20 mi. days begin!

Keep it up, Chris! It's great to hear you've hit the trail. May your adventures bring new questions, and deeper relationships with the trail, self, journey, and others.
