Hey guys! Sorry for the radio silence. This is why:
- Hiking is hard
- Blogging is hard
- Blogging while hiking is really, really hard
I know, I know–it’s just walking. And it’s just writing. And it’s just writing while walking. But the longer I put it off, the heavier and hairier the task became, until finally updating my blog was this scraggly-haired, bloodshot-eyed, sharp-toothed monster with halitosis breathing down my neck. So I stopped blogging and the monster went away. Yeah, I know, life is hard.
But, guess what? I finished!! On August 14, 4 months, 12 days, and 2189.2 miles later, I climbed to the top of Katahdin and completed the Appalachian Trail. She was a beautiful bitch who chewed me up and spit me out over and over and over again. But in the end, she stole my heart.
