  1. From the AT to the FT back to the AT....

    Well, it was just a week ago or so that we were hiking the Appalachian Trail. As many knows, in life, things can change in a flash. Throughout this journal, I will explain what happened on the AT and further discuss our journey on the Florida Trail. We will be starting SOBO on the Florida Trail on January 1, 2015. We will be back on the Appalachian Trail in March of 2015 if we finish the Florida Trail quick enough. The flat ground will give my knee time to heal.Tear Drop

  2. An Update

    Following our exit from Helen, my injured knee continued to swell. With that being said, it was impossible to climb mountains and we were forced off the trail. We made it quite some ways, but now must lighten our packs and look after my knee.

We are staying in the area and will not be returning to Florida, Vegas, or anywhere ...

We made it to breakfast, did laundry, and then it was time for me to sleep...in a bed. A few hours of recouping, I was back to myself. We cleaned up, made some plans, and headed out to explore the town during the day (as some of you may know, Helen tends to close down about 5). The streets are decorated for Christmas ...

  4. A Couple of Zeros

    We took a couple of Zeros and shuttled forward for a hotel and to fix or repurchase a new pack for me. A broken pack, knee issues for me, and some side problems for her have slowed us down. With that said, we just took a couple of days off. We will be returning to Mountain Crossings tomorrow to continue on with our thru-hike. I know it's early to be taking zeros, but we are trying to remain healthy. It also rained, so we figured that sitting it out with this cold at night was smart. We will be back ...
