Photography, Adventure, Gear and other Musings

More from my AT adventure this past weekend

without comments

After 13 miles, 3 states, 1800 ft straight up elevation and a crappy night camping I was knackered to say the least.  I was 0.2 miles from the Application Trail Conservancy in Harper’s Ferry, WV when I found a bench to stop, get my breath and contemplate if it would be the end of me.  I was beat and it was hot, so I sat down and took a short break before finishing.  As I was relaxing trying to re-inject life into myself and wondering if  a defibrillator was nearby, an older gentleman comes sprinting by like a jack rabbit.  I ran into this same gentleman later at the Conservancy headquarters and got talking with him.  I found out that he started thru-hiking in Georgia, which was about 1000 miles south and had had a heart attack a year earlier while being in his 70s.  Needles to say, I am fat useless schlep.  So please help me rebuild my shattered ego and like today’s photo.
