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 - 6/17

PTD is excited to see his family. He hasn't seen his sister Karen and parts of the family since Christmas.

Early to rise as he has many miles to put on today to get to the gap.

About 6:30pm Karen and Dave's nephew Robbi picked him up at the Delaware Water Gap. He was glad to see them and to get off his feet.

He has now finished PA. Super!!! Another state down.

He has done 1,283 miles to date and has 894 left to go. He has 7 more states to go.

He will be taking a few zero days to spend w/family. He should be back on the trail in NJ on Sunday.
