  1. 12 Miles in 11 Hours

    I came across an interesting 2009 blog with a remarkable entry on Day 18: 12 Miles in 11 Hours. It sure read like a tough going! As an aside, the look & feel of the blog was notable. Brad's son, Glen, designed the site.

    "We hiked hard today from 6:30am until 6:00pm, taking only 20 minutes for lunch. For all this effort we did 12.8 miles, starting at Bemis Mountain Lean-to, trail mile 137.7, and ending as the only occupants of Hall Mountain Lean-to, trail mile 250.5. We're ...

  4. Teacher & Gumball

    Gumball is my 11yr old great-nephew who has recently joined our household. He was intrigued by the stories of hiking the AT with Snacktime and wanted to give it a try. We've had several local jaunts and he seems to legitimately enjoy spending time in the woods. I was planning to start my very own section hike at Springer this fall, and told him he could join me if he was up to the challenge. In May he first set foot on the AT with a leisurely stroll along the Pochuck Boardwalk in NJ, and in June ...
