Troll's 2010 AT Journal

    31 July 2010, Iron Mountain Road Bridge
    I have vertigo issues that bother me every once and a while. It has been years since I have had it occur. Yesterday I start having mild vertigo problems. Today it started bothering me bad but not bad enough to prevent me from hiking. Climbing up inside High Point monument today really got to me. I did not make it all the way to the top; it was 291 steps to the top.

    When I got to the secret shelter today the owner ...

    Culvers fire tower was just about identical to the Catfish fire tower with the exception of the paint job on it. There was only one other person there when I arrived. It was someone out section hiking. After he left I climbed the tower.

    I made it to the shelter in a very quick time. The section hiker was there. I signed the register and moved on. I left the section hiker behind. I continued to make very good time. That was until I made a good trip ...

    The hike out of Delaware Water Gap was not as bad as I expected, however the humidity was hiking with me this morning. It cooled off once I got back on top of the mountain at Sunfish Pond. Sunfish pond had an abundance of frogs all around the edge of the pond. The sky started to get real dark and spitting rain so I put my pack on and got ready to start moving on. As soon as I put my pack on the rain stopped and the skies started to clear. When I ...

    I took a zero today waiting to hook up with my step brother who I have not seen in over 34 years.

    I spent the morning going getting resupplied. First on the agenda was to get my mail at the post office. I was surprised to find a box full of Gatorade and some slim jims from a fellow geocacher in Maine. I am amazed by the kindness people show.

    Next stop was the outfitters at DWG. The lady at the outfitters was not very friendly ...

    When I got to the road crossing at Fox Gap today I met Hopper and there was a van like an old milk truck parked there with some writing on it and the number 13 written on it in big letters. There was no one visible in the front seats. While standing there for a bit I heard a noise from within the van. I felt a little uneasy after hearing that. I let Hopper drive off first and then I left. While at Fox Gap there were two large rocks on the side of the road ...
