Ponytail hit the 2 MILLION foot step mark. 3 Million more to go. What an accomplishment! Way to go PTD!
PTD encountered a bear today right in the middle of the trail. He could see this massive black bear in the middle of the trail ahead. He was so excited he was trying to grab the camera out of his side pants pocket and grabbed his gorp (trail mix for those that don't know). Oh, no! Put it back quickly and hoped the bear didn't smell all the fruits and nuts. He then found the camera (other pocket) too late, that dang bear ran off. PTD is determined to get a pic of a bear. Says he saw 2 black snakes today, some turkeys and some bunny rabbits.
He also told me he has poison ivy. He is putting some cortisone cream on it till he gets to town on Sat to get some Calamine Lotion. Says it is on his feet, legs and arms. Not itchy. YET!
Says he skirted several wild storms today.
He stayed along w/the Flying Scotsmen at the Lot Mountain Campground.
