Mile 722.6 – Kent, CT

Today, we got trail magic. This time, though, it wasn’t from a stranger, but from our family! My sister QuickQuestion, brother-in-law Yankee, nephew Bones and niece Curly Locks picked us (including Fire Marshall – we have reunited!) up from the trail in Kent and took us home to shower, launder and eat home-cooked goods. It…

Mail Drop Update

Remember that whole list I put together for mail drops? Please disregard. Well, for now. Right now, we are resupplying more so in towns and not relying on the post office. We do LOVE packages and note from y’all, but right now we are just moving too quick to keep the dates updated. We know…

Two states down!!

What an awesome ZERO day. We can’t thank our host and hostess Second Nature and Grateful enough. They were awesome and took very good care of us! Checking another state off the list feels so good. 160 miles, 13 days! Like I said, NH was very good to us and we enjoyed it immensely. The…

Mile 442.3 – Days 36-38

Hello from Hanover, NH! This trail town is right on the border of Vermont, so that means we (us & Fire Marshall) have officially finished NH! We hiked about 12 miles today and got in around lunch … Thru hikers get a free slice of pizza at Ramuto’s, a free Snickers bar at The Mountain…

Mile 398.5 – Days 27-35

Hello from Glencliff, NH! I know it’s been awhile and you are all awaiting an update! We have been without services for most of our NH hike. But, today we took a nero at a hiker hostel. And once again, this town has no cell service, but has wireless Internet. All I really wanted was…

MAINE – 1 state down, 13 to go!

So we’ve finished Maine! It was exactly 281.4 miles, the second longest state on the trail. I wouldn’t exactly call ME easy, but the challenges were rewarded with incredible beauty, much of it in remote wilderness. Here’s a recap of Maine …24 days11 nights slept in a tent8 nights slept in a lean-to shelter 5…

Mile 297.9 – Days 23-26

Hello from Gorham, NH, where we are enjoying yet another wonderful hiker hostel! We have finished Maine!!! It feels so good to have one state under our belt. A real mental boost for sure. But, Maine did not let us get out without a few more bumps and bruises … Here’s a recap of the…

Mile 187.8 – Days 13-16

The last update I gave you was from the Northern Outdoors Center, where we hobnobbed with some NOBOs and enjoyed the center’s luxuries. We even ran into some friends from NH (Grant and Jill who run Untamed New England Adventure Race). They gave us a dose of trail magic by picking up our tab at…

AT Mile 114.5 – Days 1-10

We are currently in Monson, ME, taking a near-zero (nero) day at Shaw’s Lodging, an awesome hiker hostel. We have showered, eaten and are now catching up with the outside world. First of all, we want to thank everyone for their thoughts, prayers, text messages, voice mails, letters, etc. We have had a great time…

44 miles complete!

We are about to go to bed but I turned on my phone and saw very random little service in Maine’s 100-mile wilderness. Figured I’d let you all know we are doing great and have been hiking for 4 days now and are 44 miles in! Keep those thoughts and prayers coming because they have…
