It’s hard to believe our thru-hike of the AT ended 5 years ago! As I went back through and put together this video I was sad to see we did not take nearly the amount of videos I thought we had. Times are different technologically than they were 5 years ago. It almost seems like leaps and bounds different, though it really isn’t.
Anyway, the video is really long. I only cut down or removed a few videos that were multiples, such as the timber rattlesnake and the beaver, and an epically long video at the bird feeder at the hostel in Vermont. But for the most part I kept all the long walking videos through the Green Tunnel. It’ll probably bore some people to tears but I put it together for us. I decided to share it here anyway. Feel free to skip around and watch different parts of it. The first part has more talking than the latter 3/4. I ended up putting a lot more music as a background to those areas. Some things I forgot about in my baby haze this year, like the completion of Make Time’s thru-hike in Dalton, Mass. It was really fun to see that when it came up in the putting together of thise video. Also, I know we have a lot of pictures from our Katahdin summit but I was really disappointed to see we did not take many videos!
I relived a lot of good memories putting it together! I also remembered all of the blisters, the hiker hobble, and the days when I wondered if we were ever going to get to camp.
