  1. PA Break from trail - then MAINE

    July 19- today was the first time I actually contemplated quitting. My feet hurt SO bad the first mile. The meds finally kicked in and the trail was really smooth today so it turned out OK. Ive got to get to a Dr in Port Clinton and get a prescription for more QPAP or something else nice and strong to get me through Maine and New Hampshire!! Strider said the trail above Port Clinton is really tough so I need to wrap my head around 13-14 mile days and be ok with that. I'll be close enough to Delaware ...

    July 15- shuttled with Pyro over to boiling springs in the morning and sat at cafe and checked email and posted pics to Facebook while I used their WiFi and ate a Reuben.

  4. Hike Up Mount Fuji (富士山 Fujisan) Japan 2016


    This is our hike up Mount Fuji (富士山 Fujisan). We did this on July 5th, just after the official hiking season opened and used the Yoshida Trail starting at the Fuji-Subaru 5th station. We traveled from Tokyo on a JR train (Chūō Main Line Rapid Service) to Ōtsuki Station, and then to Kawaguchiko on the Fujikyu Railway service. This website provided particularly good instructions on how to do this and it was easy.
