10 Years Later…

atfinish001Today it is 10 years since I stood atop Mt Katahdin with a shot of Jack Daniels in one hand and a beer in the other and finished my Appalachian Trail thru-hike.  Even though it was a pain in the ass I am glad I did it!

Next Year

A favorite mantra of mine.  Next year I am going to be fast again.  Next year I am going to learn Spanish.  Next year I am going to have a huge garden.  Next year I am going to get my whole Appalachian Trail journal onto the web.  Next year I am going to run for public office.  Next year I am going to etc…  etc

Last year Cody and I rang in the next year right, with honky hornery!

stp81716stp817141We had thought to ride the tandem around downtown and honk that horn but when it got to be 11:45 and our bluff was called we were happy enough to be home and warm so we just settled for some shed-side revelry.  Next year!

As to that whole AT journal thing, I finally torpedoed the pathetic journal I had started here and I have started uploading all of my pictures and as time allows I will caption them and that will have to be as good as it gets.  Honestly, I can barely stand to read all my written ramblings from that trip so why would anyone else want to!  Just look at the pretty pictures and if you want more information ask me in person.  I can talk about that trip for hours it seems, just ask me!

I also changed the header photo, obviously, that last one was getting beyond stale.  The new is my old pal D Bax and I riding out to the Ragbee back in the day.

Happy Next Year!
