Day 124 – Wind!

“It does not matter how slowly you go, so long as you do not stop.” – Confucius

I almost quit yesterday. But they say never quit on a bad day so I went to bed got up this morning and I’m really enjoying the hike!


It is a little cool, but I can take that. It’s the miserable rain and drizzle that I have a hard time with now.

I had some sun to start out with, but it faded pretty quick going behind the clouds. Then the wind picked up and it was my challenge for the day.

Autumn is in full swing.  The colors of the trees are magnificent. The nights are cold.  I think I have about nine days left.

Over and over I think about what my dad always used to say… You can fight a bear for a day. I’m hoping that I have nine days of fight left in me… and that I do not meet any more bears.

  1. You can make it another nine days. Compared to the 124 you have done, it is a drop in the bucket. Looks like you are making great mileage. I don’t know what would be worse to hike in-the cold or the heat. At least with the cold, you can put on layers and moving will warm you up.

    Hope you do not see bears. With the trees losing their leaves, they should be easier to spot. Hope you do not need to go to the bathroom. Doesn’t look like there is much to block you from others seeing you. However, sounds like you are not running into a lot of hikers so that may not be an issue.

    Stay safe and warm my friend. I am excited for you to finish this adventure.
