Stuck in the mud? Got blisters? Thank the Appalachian Trail — Bangor Daily News — BDN Maine

Stuck in the mud? Got blisters? Thank the Appalachian Trail — Bangor Daily News — BDN Maine.

Even though it is still 100% humidity outside and I’m sweating while eating breakfast, I decided to join my hiking buddy Guthook and take a hike today while we reminisce and enjoy the most accessible sport in the world – hiking.

Guthook and I completed our own thru hikes of the AT in 2007. Here’s my treasured summit shot, from September 16, 2007.

MeGaTex plus more make it !
