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 – 7/6

We stayed right near the trail head so not far to travel this morning to see Ponytail off. Extremely hot again today.

I forgot to mention when he weighed himself at Tom’s the other day he weighed in at 166 lbs w/socks, shorts and shirt on. So, that means he lost a total of 27 lbs.

At 9am he called to say he crossed the state line. He is now in VT. Only 3 more states to go.(VT, NH, ME)

The Long Trail starts here. He will be on the AT/Long Trail for 105.2 miles then they split and the AT goes east where he will go.

Ponytail did a total of 18.4 miles today and hit the 1600 mile mark
