Appalachian Trail 2010

Sunrise A Year Ago

Chris Kite Flying on Katahdin Summit!

I will wax poetic for years to come about August 11, 2010.

A year ago if you’d asked me where I would be today I wouldn’t have had a clue. And now, looking back a year later I would have told myself to stay another week or two in Maine and slow the heck down. We had a good pace, in fact, I loved our pace, but I would’ve like to have enjoyed Maine a bit more. Then again, I wouldn’t take back our summit day, the rare Class I day with a perfect sunrise and summitting Katahdin with some of our favorite people: Cubbie, Dilly Dally and Blue Rooster….and no one else.

A year later, though I’ve written more comprehensive blog posts about the hike, I still ruminate writing a book on the experience and on our Florida Trail hike. I debate on how to set it apart from every other AT hiking book there is out there. Maybe it will be published for all to read, maybe not. At least I could get it out of my head.
