Update from Lake Okeechobee
I talked to Misti today. Here is a rundown of what has been going on… – They made it to Clewiston on Friday. – Lots of road walking. Walking on levees and through burning cane fields. Its been pretty boring since leaving Big Cypress. – Had a trail angel pick them up today and take them to the grocery store to pick up food for the next week. – It’ll be about about 10 days until they will be anywhere to access a computer and post something themselves. – Wildlife seen: osprey, snail kite, white pelican, eastern diamondback, cottonmouth, raccoon, armadillo. That’s about it. Misti and Chris seemed to be…
the White Mountains are kicking their butts. Its cold and windy and they got some rain last night. Doing about 12-14 mile days.
Today is Free Slurpee Day….and Misti’s birthday!!!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MISTI. From, Your bro, sis-in-law, and your favorite niece.
From our days hiking with Caboose and Spark and Merf. Meeting Hit and Miss at the Cookie Lady’s house. Finding a Moose track! COOL! The beauty on Upper Goose Pond. At the Mt. Wilcox #2 shelter for the night. Blueberry pickin’!! On Bear Mtn, Ct, right before going into Mass. Merf and Chris swimming in Sages Ravine. Too cold for me! Chris and Caboose on Bear Mtn.
Make Time’s Thru-hike completion
Calling his wife to say he was done! Relaxing at the end of the trail, right before coming into Dalton. Make Time and Cob.
Misti called me this evening. They are spending the night in a hostel on the Pennsylvania/New Jersey border at Delaware Water Gap. They spent their wedding anniversary on the trail yesterday. Today they were able to celebrate it with a short 13 mile day and a steak dinner. They’ll be resupplying soon in Unionville.
No news is good news.
Misti’s brother here. I talked to Misti and Chris over the weekend. They had just finished lunch and were continuing on for a few more miles. I think they are about tired of walking in PA. Tired of climbing over rocks. That’s all I got for now. They should hit a town soon.
Nature in PA
As an aside, I’ve barely taken any photos on this trip…the majority of the credit can go to Chris.
AT Museum and Fry Shelter
The shelter that Pie & Cake came out to. Full house that night.
Tucked away in Maryland is the original Washington Monument. Bet you didn’t know there was one older than the one in DC!
