Wednesday

We took the dogs out to the Nature Preserve and walked the Orange Loop, a mile through the woods with a few ups and downs. I ran up a hill! But I felt clumsy on little wooden "bridges" across the muddy parts. This trail is just about exactly a mile.
I find I want to keep track the way my husband did when he hiked the Appalachian Trail, so:
Day 4--1 mile, 5.7 total miles.

Just wanted to ask how much of the trail did you husband hike? Not sure about the bears, but I've wanted to do the trail sometime before I get really old (100), Right now, time is a factor.

Joanne, he thru-hiked north to south in 2000, leaving from Katahdin on July 30th and reaching Springer Mountain in Georgia on December 21st. He never saw a single bear, to my relief and his disappointment!
