    You will always remember your last white blaze. For most it will be the sign on Kathaden, others Springer Mt., or just white blaze at a road crossing. It will always help you to remember your adventure.

    There's no hurry, that's for sure. Looked the same this November as last December.
    It's a strange spot for me. I normally don't care to see manmade anything when hiking, but somehow it just looks "right" there.

    CONGRATUALTIONS !!!

    Had planned to finish my last 167 miles this summer, but now planning to do it in 2021. Considering it is NH & ME unfortunately I have not followed your advice in the next to last paragraph. So happy for you and your husband!

    Great accomplishment and even more special that you got to share it all with each other.
    While searching for that unknown edge in life, never forget to look home. For the greatest edge you can find in life is to stand in the protective shadow of those who love you.

    Perhaps the bigger accomplishment " got to share it all with each other " !

    Much Respect and envy!

    And you're correct alot of trails to choose from , not a short bucket list.
    Hope y'all share many more "double blazes" !!

    We started on our 20th anniversary and we finished on our 30th.
    Our first section was 25-30 miles in Shenandoah and took us about 5 days.
    Our longest section was 103 miles in New York.
    Our final section was 21 miles in Tennessee from Hughes Gap to Indian Grave Gap, but we added to that by starting at Elk Park and re-hiking over the Roan Highlands, one of our favorite areas.
    This last trip took a little more than 4 days.

    Why don't you stop what you're doing, put your boots on and take a walk with me....
    Interesting. I've posed the question before. What is the shortest longest section of anyone who has completed the trail. Most people that complete the trail generally do at least one very large section at once. In your case, your longest section is 103 miles. I don't recall anyone else claiming to have completed the whole trail who's longest section is less than 103 miles.
