I just want to thank all of you who are following my thru-hike on this blog. Your comments are very encouraging and help me stay motivated to hike on tough days like today. Some of you comment frequently and I really appreciate all of your comments. For those of you who do not comment, I am just as appreciative because I know that you are pulling for me to finish this hike.
I am very happy to be hiking into New York tomorrow. If all goes well I should be in Connecticut next Wednesday and in Massachusetts four days later.
If all continues to go well I will enter Vermont on June 26th. That will be a major milestone and the real challenge will begin. The final three states – Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine – will be very challenging but also very rewarding and I am really looking forward to getting there. I hope I’m up to the task!
Thanks again to all of you for your support, it truly is what keeps me going. Here’s a funny sign I saw yesterday near Joe to Go.
