Getting Underway...Again

For the Appalachian Trail I have 667 miles left and must be in Los Angeles by June 19th, so I have my work cut out for me. I will be taking it a bit slower than I had before being driven off the trail with an injury last July, so I won't be hiking any 61 mile days. I am not planning to anyway.

I am looking at the remainder of the hike in two parts: from Great Barrington, MA to Killington, VT and from Killington, VT to Katahdin, ME. The mileage division is about one quarter to three quarters, but having spent so much time in Killington, VT it is like a second home. Not only that but Laura, the girl I have been dating since pretty much the conclusion of the kayak trip will be meeting me in Killington the weekend of May 15th, so I am in no particularly hurry to arrive in Killington before then. From there on though, I will on the dash to Maine.

Here I go again...
