The Hike takes Someone who can, and is willing to eat Ramein noodles and dried fruit for six months. With an occasional binge of all he pizza you can eat. After over 1800 miles I still like Ramein noodles, Sherry hates them.
I started this entry because as I write, I want to go back. Although I know (I think) I am too old to be traipsing around in the Mountains, woods and plains. BUT, but there is a guy from Shelby, NC who did do a thru hike at 80 years of age. I told Sherry I think I will wait until I am 85 and try to set a new record. She laughs and sorta rolls her eyes.
Any way, I am enjoying this book, I was hoping to do a 200 page book, but I don't think I am capable of that, it will probably be 375, not good.
Well, I sat here for 5 days waiting for some stirring of the writing juices, finally today I wrote a chapter, and I am hooked again
(Not all plans work out, this is supposed to be the best view on the Virginia trail, we hit clouds)
PS: I have been asked, why Ramein noodles? The answer is simple, they are light!
