Appalachian Trail Day 148

Day 148

07-25-01 17.1 – miles

Chairback Logan Brook Lean-to

AT – 2096.7

I didn’t sleep well at all.  The shelter deck was very uneven.  I kept sliding down.  Plus it was hot until it rained.

The trail was very easy compare to the last couple of days.  The humidity was greatly less today.  I actually had 10 miles in by 11:30am.  That’s the first time in  a while.  Lunch was at Carl Newhall Lean-to.

After lunch on top of Gulf Hagas Mtn. I got my first good view of Katahdin.  It brought tears to my eyes.  I can’t believe it’s been 15yrs. And 2000+ miles to get here.  I saw OJI and Double Top Mtns.  It’s tough to express my feels at night.  Usually I’m too tired or uncomfortable to write.  It blew me away seeing Katahdin.  Never have I been so happy to  see a pile of rocks.  All I think about is summit day.  It’s going to be so nice to hike back up with Mark and my dad like we did 15yrs ago.  I can’t wait.

I forged a river w/o getting any leeches.  But a dog did bark its head off at me while I took off my shoes.  Tonight its cooler and less humid.  It’s still early but I don’t have much to write.  I can say I only have 5 days left and I can’t wait to be home.  The trail has diffidently taken its too on me.  My feet are hurting.  I must roll my ankles  3-4 times a day.  MY left ankle hurts ever morning when I wake up.  My knuckle still hurts from when I fell.  Tomorrow should be real easy.


Get out there!
