Spring Break, alas, is over very, very soon. I'm getting ready for my day of travel (I have a layover in
ATL) by cramming pancakes and sausages down my gullet.

A year ago today I was waking up in my tent, getting ready to hit the trail and cross Blood Mountain in a cold rainstorm. Happy days, them.

I have decided to keep this blog dedicated to the AT and all things hiking, and to start a new blog on Philly, grad school, etc. and link to it from here.

Pennsylvania tonight.

Apancalypse now!

NEWS: This blog will be different

I've been thinking long and hard about what to do here, now that all that hiking is done. There will be more trails, but in the meantime, there's life.

And I want to blog about parts of that that I feel like blogging about.

I'm thinking a broader set of concerns will be my topic here in the months to come. Certainly not as epic as climbing Mt. Katahdin, or going to bed in a rainy shelter in the woods in Georgia after a long time away from the trail, or doing the half-gallon challenge.

Instead, things like what it's like attending writing school after years away from Miami (Ohio), living in a big city for the second time (last was Prague, 2005-06), and eating brunch with my girlfriend at different hotspots all the time (cause brunch is a big deal in Philly, and for me personally).

So I hope to be uploading the first new posts and doing a little bit of redesign while I'm on Spring Break in Florida. Plane leaves at 6 a.m. tomorrow.

Coming soon:

a final data sheet on my hike. And then I have to figure out what I want to do with this blog.

As you can see from the sparsity of posts I've not been around here much. Grad school is occupying!

I'll see you in September

New posts coming soon, guys, I promise!

I've got acres of words, stories and images to share from the trail, circa northern Virginia to Pennsylvania and then another round of New England hiking. At the same time I've recently [very recently] moved to South Philly to begin grad school. This has meant I've been busy with moving and setting up a life, however temporary, here, in this teeming urban environment. I swear there's but one tree, a sapling, on my entire block. Quite different from the Trail.

My absences will be shorter.

Upper Goose Pond

[The cabin at Upper Goose Pond.]

I got off the bus in Lee, Ma. and stepped straight into a high-powered storm. I sprinted for cover but not before hitting a parking lot flash flood that soaked me to my calves. A taxi brought me to the trailhead and a 1.6 mile southbound hike brought me here, where a nice family is serving as caretaker.

Zero day today, pancakes for breakfast and Dalton tomorrow. Then a 20-mile-a-day dash to Manchester, Vt. by Sunday.

Warm welcome back to the Trail
