Day 151 and 152

I took a zero near Andover, Maine at the Human Nature Hostel. It is a great place. It was started by Yukon (trail name). He thru hiked the trail in 2012 to walk off war. He was a Marine in the Iraq and Afgahn Wars. He was on Naked and Afraid a bunch of times. The hostel was built from scratch by him. He is a cool and interesting guy. This place is perfect for hikers.

On Day 152, I stayed at the hostel but slack packed (just a day pack) about 10 miles of the AT today. It was a nice day. Saw a moose. Ate well today. I had some nice conversations with several local people in town today. It was a very good day.

I hit the trail tomorrow. I look forward to what lies ahead and figuring out how to keep the spirit, ideals and kindness of the AT in my mind and heart and having it be a part of my life and actions. The AT will never leave me.

  1. Beautiful country and great photos, J. You’re right, the AT will be part of you forever… memories may fade but will never be forgotten.

    Sounds like you had a great day today. Great moose sighting. The boys are big fans of naked and afraid so they liked the hostel picture. Looks like a very nice place.

    The AT experience will change you forever; it will be one that adds deeper meaning to your life at many levels. You’ve earned this wisdom of the ages. It comes with a price. You can only pay it forward now.
