1,000 Miles!

29 Sep

This week we began to cruise again and got some good miles in, including mile 1,000 and beyond! We are in Duncannon, PA enjoying the wonders of The Doyle, a hiker tradition that has been open 107 years. We also ate the largest pancakes we had ever seen!

18 Sep

…well, shuffling. We did 51 miles in 35 hours. We are so proud of this!
After a zero mile day and wee too much wine on our zero mile night we decided to ease back into hiking with an easy 12 mile stretch and then sleep at a shelter. It was super nice because we were basically car camping. During the day we swapped off carrying a small pack with two Gatorade bottles and a water filter plus a few snacks inside.
