I hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2013. The whole thing, from top to bottom, Maine to Georgia. My trail name was Rooster. I had a blast. I posted each day's journal on a blogspot site. After some time had passed, I just couldn't stand to look at that ugly old blog any longer. So I made this expanded blog that can do things my old one couldn't. Daily maps and elevation profiles of my hiking route. All the photos I didn't upload for whatever reason. And some new perspectives from the older version of myself. I cracked myself up many times while creating this new and improved trail journal. I really hope it cracks you up too.
