  1. Day 63: Uneventful Day

    Today we have 12 miles to the next shelter. Weíll see what time we get there and whether we want to push further or stop. Today was a pretty uneventful day. I donít know if itís the heat and Iím not drinking enough water, but I just donít feel like I have that extra push and Iím definitely feeling it on the uphills. Made it to the shelter before 3 pm, so we decided to push another 4 miles to Lick Creek Campsite. Nice spot right by the creek.

  2. Day 62: Moving Forward

    Got shuttled back to the trail first thing in the morning. We have 15 miles today to get to Davis Path Campsite. I have a heavy pack with 5 days of food.

Not Sure decided he had gone far enough today with his heel pain and 2 knees decided to stay with him.

  4. Day 60: Flying through the miles

    Today we 15.4 miles to Marion. Got on trail around 8:30am. Not Sure decided to shuttle to the end and meet us there because his heel was hurting already. Two Knees, Ken and I flew down the trail today. We did 15.4 miles in 5.5 hours with our packs. The terrain was nice and easy. Got picked up by a friend of TwoKnees daughter who follows his YouTube videos. He came with chocolate milk and Diet Coke. 😂 Checked into the hotel and then he treated us to an early barbecue dinner with his wife ...

  5. Day 59: Early start for a Massage

    Woke up early and was on trail by 7am. Itís so much easier to get moving earlier when itís warm. Today we have 8 miles to Dickey Gap where weíre getting picked up by Sufi Lodge to stay the night. Iím also getting a massage! Made it to the gap by 11:30am. Got a shower, did laundry and got a heavenly massage. She said my muscles are holding up really well. They made chicken parm for dinner. It was delicious! Have a private room tonight so I donít have to listen to TwoKnees snoring. 🙏
