He threw everything in his pack and headed out to meet the shuttle as it was getting ready to leave to bring hikers back to the trail head.
Another gorgeous day. Puffy clouds, blue skies. Feeling good. Foot still hurts but everyday he “just deals” with it along w/all the other aches and pains.
Bigelow West (4,145) Spectacular views. Absolutely one of the best places on the AT. 360 panoramic views of Sugarloaf Ski area and other surrounding mountains.
Bigelow Avery Peak (4,090) was more amazing views. Just a little after reaching this peak he called to say he had reached the 2,000 mile mark.
He has traveled 2,000 miles on the AT continuously for 122 days. Only taking about 10 days off completely. So, averaging about 18 miles every day. Unbelievable! What a man!
Then he summits Little Bigelow(3,010) and travels to the Little Bigelow Lean to (1,760). This lean to will sleep 8. He met Moose & Tetherball there. Looks like Inferno and Fastlayne pushed on to the next shelter. They all hope to meet up Monday morning to go on the Ferry over the Kennebec River together.
