Last night I had the opportunity to speak about thru hiking to my old Boy Scout Troop, Troop 78.  This was the first time I ever had a formal speaking engagement about my hiking.  The Scouts were great at asking very specific and excellent questions and seemed to be very engaged even though I rambled on and on for 45 mins.  I was thoroughly impressed.  Normally I get the same questions all the time …. like, how do you carry six months worth of food?….where do you sleep?…..How do you know where to walk?……..

Check out Troop 78’s website.  Seems like they are doing a lot of awesome stuff!  

BTW, Troop 78 …. Thru hikers LOVE trail magic!… like ice cream and cookies and soda and hotdogs and burgers and pizza …… hint hint hint …Caledonia or Pine Grove are great places that are right on the trail that thru hikers will be walking through  … we’ll be more then happy to eat anything in sight!  hint hint hint!!!

Anyway, thank you Troop 78 …. hope you enjoyed my visit; I certainly had a blast sharing my stories!

Today I leave for the trail.  Ryan and Murph will be picking me up shortly and then I’ll be on my way!  Sunday morning I’ll be hiking North!  Thank you to everyone who have played their part in making this trip possible!  

Love and handstands!
