AT Happiness: Status Update

AT Happiness: Status Update

Well lots has been happening, a quick trip to Washington DC and then a 300 mile bump up to the Shenandoah National Park.

The park is beautiful and the trails are great. I started with a 3 day sinus headache and grouchy knees, both have improved.


Meeting lots of new hikers like our new friend Hotfoot.


I’ve also taken up a new hobby, modeling things on the AT. Maybe I’ll change my trail name to Vanna.

We are seeing a lot of deer and bears in the park, haven’t been able to get a good bear photo yet.

We’re at mile 924 and with the bump up I’m closing in on my 600th mile walked since March 7th. Not bad for an old boy, still having happy days my friends. – Rev Kane

    You look great (happy, healthy, sane) and I love the “Vanna” poses. We’ll be in the NE in Sept – I’d love it if our paths can intersect!
