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

Wednesday 7/28

Enjoyed his hike today. Old Blue Mnt – beautiful, blue sky, little haze, lots of scrub pines at the top, later on he sat on the bench near Rte 17 viewed Long Pond and Moxie Pond. Got to see a huge body of water called Mooselookmeguntic Lake (the name if for real).

Haven’t seen any animals other than chipmunks and birds.

Says lots of south bounders passed him today. He spent the night at Sabbath Day Pond Lean to. 2 section hikers and some south bounders spent the night too.

16.7 Mile traveled 1,948.8 miles to date 229.5 miles left
