Trail Name Postman

Here’s a photo of Postman in our room at the Aquone Hostel before we headed out into the rain, sleet, ice and wind on Thursday morning. Postman is a Dartmouth graduate who worked in finance for a few years before giving that up to hike the AT. He got his trail name on day one when he headed out from Springer Mountain in the snow wearing shorts. He always wears shorts! Postman is a very strong hiker and I hope to be able to hike with him a lot. You can check out Postman’s blog at



About The Man in My Shoes

Since retiring in 2012 I am enjoying the freedom of being able to make my own decisions about how I spend my time and am taking advantage of the opportunities that I have to spend more time with my family, explore, learn, and pursue my dreams and goals. I look forward to writing about these pursuits and hope you enjoy reading about them.
