Troll's 2010 AT Journal

    30 August 2010, North Woodstock
    I spent the first part of the morning organizing and getting all my winter gear back into my pack. I start the Whites in two days. I am more concerned about the weather in the Whites than I was about the weather in the Smoky Mountains. It can be really windy in the Whites and I will be in a hammock. I do have my under quilt for the hammock and I will also carry a rubber foam pad too. It should be enough but I am a cold sleeper, will keep my fingers crossed ...

    At one point in the night last night Forest was sleeping under his tarp and we heard him jump out of his tent yelling "what the f#*!". He woke up to a skunk next to his face.

    I slept in the carport last night. It is a canvas carport with about 10 beds under it. During the night last night we had a visitor come in and visit us. It was a skunk, it tried to get into Sandman's food bag. We all woke up to the sound of it trying to get into the ...

    All I have been thinking about for the last three days is the climbs coming up. Tomorrow (Sunday) is Smarts Mountain and Mt Cube followed Monday by Mt Moosilauke. Tuesday is the climb up South and North Kinsman Mountain. Wednesday is the start the White Mountains. The climbing is about to start. I am not looking forward to this at all.

    I just realized that because of my one reservation at Zealand Fall Hut on 02 September that I am ...

    Today started out a lot better than it did for me yesterday. I was able to pick back up with my two mile per hour pace.

    I did notice a few things about the trail today that in my opinion should be taken care off soon. There were two different areas when the old trail was rerouted but you could see the white blazes from the new reroute. This could be a potential hazard for a hiker in the future. These blazes should at least be removed from the view ...

    The first mile of the day started out fine. However after the first mile everything went to crap. I lost all my energy. I felt like a battery that was getting ready to run out of charge. I could not keep a two mile an hour pace like I have always been able to in the past. I was barely keeping over a one mile per hour pace. I felt so drained and tired. I don't understand it. I ate a good dinner last night and had a good breakfast. I know it is not my food intake. I ...
