I’ve been home one week and it seems like months, but then again, it seemed like I was gone forever. My re-entry felt like a crash landing at first and I’ve been laying low, just testing the waters. I’ve looked at my photos at least 100 times and I really miss the trail. I miss the ice cold streams, fresh clean air, all the green that goes on forever. Sometimes I miss the bears!
My legs don’t seem to miss the rock climbing. I have pain that is up and down, but pretty constant. My goal is to be pain free in time to hike in September so I can get these old tired legs ready for another section of the AT next summer. This September I’ve planned a short trip to a Trail Days festival in Dahlonega, Georgia and then I will hike the southern portion of the Pinhoti Trail in Alabama. This time Chili Cheese Dog gets to hike with me. And anyone else wanting to abuse their feet for a few days.
FOR NOW…I will be moving in to my house in the Lower 9th next month. Found myself an old Subaru to get me around for a bit and I’m looking for a space to work out of. Until then, I’m going stir crazy. And this means you get more photos!
Ok. Stay with me…I’m not done yet!
