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

Thursday 6/10

It is dry and sunny PTD reported this afternoon. He says he passed through many winding cornfields and crossed many roads on his travels today.  Some of the towns he passed through were Mt Holly Springs & Boiling Springs, PA. Boiling Springs is where the Mid-Atlantic ATC regional office is.

He had some trail magic - he was given some pizza from a man that said you look hungry. Cool. PTD will enjoy that pizza that man didn't want to take home. THANKS man!

He stayed at the Darlington Shelter. He did 26 miles today. This shelter sleep 8 and was rebuilt in 1982
