In a day or two I should be close to 200 miles. Started off at 6 ¬ 8 miles a day and now up to about 12+. Goal is to get to at least 15 a day. No injuries so far, and I think that’s because I’m increasing the miles slowly.
After Cumberland Valley, we climbed up a PA “mountain”, about 2000 feet elevation with a great view of the Susquehanna river in the background.
I’m trying to figure out the “meaning of life” in this next pic. Promised Stephanie I would have some great new insights by the end of the hike. Still working on it.
Late that day we came into Duncanon PA and stayed at the Doyle Hotel. A favorite for hikers since rooms only cost $20.
After showering we went to local grocery for next 5 day food supply :
Next morning up another mountain for an even better view of the Susquehanna
That afternoon, along the mountain Ridge, we passed a group of boy scouts learning how to repel and climb up a 100 foot shear rock face. Seemed like they had excellent instructors. They wanted me to try, but I declined. Sorry Paul T. and Michelle M-S
Passed a few nice trout streams and then set up our tents. Still wish I had my fly rod.
Today was an easy 13 mile hike though the woods. Finding a nice meadow this afternoon was the highlight.
Finishings this post lying in my tent now. Hiker’s midnight is usually as soon as it gets dark, so off to bed soon.
Thanks for following my blog!
