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

Sunday – 6/20

Extremely hot and humid. A few spot showers. PTD crossed over into NJ today.

Passed Sunfish pond, which is the southernmost glacial pond on the AT. It is a protected area in the state due to its unique features. This pond was formed by the scooping action of glaciers during the ice age over 10,000 years ago. He got to see Catfish Fire Tower which is a very old tower that was built in 1922 and stands about 60 feet tall. He camped at Crater Lake. He did about 19 miles today.

PTD hit 1300 miles today too. So, today he has done 1,303.3 miles on the AT. Incredible! He now has 875 left
