Trail Family Meeting on the Appalachian Trail
So as I posted recently my friend Awesome is thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail. We hiked together on the AT back in 2015 and he instantly became trail family. Awesome’s week has been going well, he says his body is holding up well and he’s enjoying his hike. This week he made it up to the Top of Georgia Hostel and took a break.
It had slipped my mind that another member of my trail family, my buddy Mau, was working at the hostel in Georgia. I got a great reminder when a text message came in from Awesome telling me they had just met. I was so excited to hear this and was glad that the two of them had met on the trail.
I have stories about both of these fine gentlemen in my book that was just published, Appalachian Trail Happiness. I have an incredibly amount of respect for both of them, Mau who finished the trail in 2015 ad Awesome who’s on his way this year.
I miss my trail family, I miss being on the trail. I did a short hike on the PCT today, the only moments of true peace I seem to find are on the trail. Today was a particularly beautiful day, a combination of snow on the trail and sixty degree weather made for a great little hike.
