Game On!!!

I have been bounced around between Orthopedists and a Neurologist, but the long and short of it is that no one has any definitive answers as to what is going on with my leg injury. With that, it’s game on. I am getting back on the Appalachian Trail and continuing my march to Maine. I have 800-miles to go and fewer than five weeks in which to do it. While it certainly doesn’t feel like it in New York, the mercury is slowly dropping across the border in Canada. If I don’t begin my kayak trip soon, I am going to have to retrofit the kayak with skate blades. The deadline I had in my mind for starting the kayak trip has been September 1st, so that is what I am up against.

As is always the case before setting off on the road I have a bunch of loose ends to tie up. I have kept my social calendar to a minimum so as to try and finish everything early, but like my days on Wall Street, I work best under pressure.

Hiking resumes in Peekskill, NY on the 23rd…
