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

Tuesday 7/27

Fantastic views from sitting on top of Wyman Mnt early in the morning.  He sat for a bit and just took in the views and the nice fresh air.  Saywers Notch had really nice views too from the ledges.  Moody Mtn was very woody and steep. 

Going to be a short day because he needs to resupply in Andover. His mail package should be at the hiking lodge by the time he gets there mid afternoon.

He is stayedat the Pine Ellis Hiking Lodge. They were very nice. His box was there when he arrived. Only 2 more mail drops to go. 

Aftter opening mail, taking a shower and doing laundry , he went downtown and had pizza and a chocolate milkshake. 

So, after eating PTD went back to the lodge and hung out on the porch w/the Traveling Circus (Ring Leader, Monkey and Lighting) and Snickers are staying at the Lodge tonight too.
