I’ve Been Backpacking…

in Virginia and Maine.  I have all sorts of adventures to post, and have got to get started.  I’ve put the piece about Gene Espy on tonight, and will just say that I’ve backpacked 6 of the last 9 days; in two stints on the AT, down south and up north.

I have just finished over 40 miles in just over two days,  doing the Grafton Loop Trail up through  Grafton Notch State park here in Maine.

The 40 + mile Grafton Loop Trail is the first new trail the Appalachian Mountain Club has completed since 1976.  I’ve put 40+ on there because I still haven’t finished tabulating all our mileage , as we did some side forays as well.

Stay tuned for several write-ups that should come in here soon.  I’m hurtin’ and healin’ tonight!
