Georgia to Maine - - Please join me from start (4/1) to finish (8/10) - 132 days!!!!!

Bethlehem, NH
I have completed my thru-hike of the AT from Georgia to Maine; I started 4/1 and completed 8/10/10. I decided to do this thru-hike in memory of my brother Michael and in turn decided to turn it into a fundraiser. All money raised went to the Adaptive Sports Partners of the North Country which gives year-round opportunities in sports and recreation to people with physical or developmental disabilities. My wife Pam and I got involved with this program because it allows us to help people with disabilities enjoy the outdoors like we do and my brother Michael did. Michael was born mentally challenged, and he loved to visit us in the North Country of NH and go hiking. He also loved the outdoors and did many other sports. So, to help others do this and other outdoor activities is a TRIBUTE to him, and an HONOR to us. Many of you have helped me along my journey and donated (follow donation link) directly to a secure website. All donations have gone and WILL CONTINUE to go to ASPNC – nonprofit org to help assist others to hike, ski, kayak, snow shoe..etc… Thank you all in advance for your kindness & generosity, Dave & Pam Smith

Monday 6/28

Lots of elevations changes today. Up and down, up and down. More than just rolling hills. Super Hot. He wishes the humidity would break. He says he drank 8 liters of water today. At least he had it today to drink.

He saw some deer, the Housatonic River, crossed an old Indian Reservation called the Indian Rocks. It was once owned by the Schaghticoke tribe, went through a part of Kent, CT, the Pine Plantation (bad shape due to the insight blight), St John’s Ledges – cool looking rock cliffs,

Stayed at Pine Swamp Brook Lean to in his tent. This shelter was built back in 1989. It is known for the fierce mosquitoes . Good thing he has his Ben’s bug spray from Tender Corp, Littleton, NH.

He traveled 25.7 miles today in the heat. He is amazing!
