When life gives you mountains, put on your boots and CLIMB! We had the funniest and craziest adventure trying to find an area to set up to do #trailmagic. We finally found a shelter on the Rock Gap trail, it was the perfect place and we arrived at the best time of day. People were getting off the trail after a long day of hiking to find us serving lattes and #krispiekreme! #encounter #unexpectedencounter #trailmagic #appalachiantrail #blueridgemountains #novelcoffeeroasters #lattes

Day 66 | Somewhere in Virginia. No, West Virginia. Or was it Maryland? After a month in just the state of Virginia, I hiked in 3 states yesterday. Today or tomorrow I'll cross into another, Pennsylvania. . . . . . #appalachiantrail #appalachiantrail2019 #at19 #at2019 #atclassof2019 #whiteblaze #georgiatomaine #optoutside #thruhike #thruhiker #atthruhike #trektheat #backpacking #hiking #hikinglife #hikingculture #hikingadventures #adventure #trail #traillife #outdoors #getoutside #outdooradventures #thegreatoutdoors #wanderlust #travel #naturelover #leavenotrace #choosemountains #withguthook

Just did a quick trip to trail days with my friend @kevo45601. We hiked up mount Rogers Got a huge reminder of the awesomeness of the AT, you just canโ€™t take a photo that captures the full beauty of the mountains. Also I got to meet some awesome people down there #appalachiantrail #traildays #traildays2019 #hike #hiker #hikertrash #sobo #hikeon #merca #hikingviking #achilles #blueblazer #whiteblaze

Trail Days was a blast. It was amazing to catch up with some of my closest trail companions, and felt great to be back amongst the thru-hiker community. Hiker trash for life. ๐ŸŽฅ: @iamlawn #at2018 #atstrong #appalachiantrail #traildays

Trail days 2019, you were a blast! Thank you for all the love, support and encouragement from #atclassof2019 #atclassof2018 #atclassof2017 ...and so on! We met so many amazing people over the last 6 weeks and we were so excited to see you again this past weekend. Best of luck on the trail and all future endeavors! And as our sign on the door says, "whatever trail you are on, we hope it leads you back to Damascus, and soon". Until our paths cross again, we send our love and best wishes! #appalachiantrail #damascusva #littlebitsbakingcompanyandprovisions

Many know the wilderness has powers. Powers over us that hard hard to describe. They can reset the soul, clear the mind, and create peace! This sunrise is a good example of this. . . . . . . . . #appalachiantrailthruhike2019 #at2019 #appalachiantrail2019 #at2019thruhike #appalachiantrail #thruhike #thetrekat #app

GOOD MORNING! I was off work yesterday and all I did was sleep the WHOLE day! Itโ€™s nice to have some time off! Today is gonna be all about cleaning the house, doing laundry, meal prepping etc. I weighed myself today and Iโ€™m still stuck on 396.8 lbs but Iโ€™m okay with that because I havenโ€™t gained any weight! I gotta get back on the band wagon and start my keto again! Iโ€™ve been working so much I havenโ€™t been eating properly. Iโ€™ve been a bit stressed about someone possibly breaking into my house. SCARY. Next March I plan on walking the AT so Iโ€™ve been working like crazy to save money for it. #weightloss #weightlosshoals #appalachiantrail #ripstronghold #grateful #lifegoals #tryingtobuyacar #bedhead

A couple days on the #appalachiantrail is the perfect way to reset the head and heart. Love this tribe. So grateful to @womenwhohike for bringing us all together over the past year. Friendships forged on the trail are some of the best I've ever experienced. This section of the AT was absolutely breathtaking. Lots of climbing, and the views were totally worth it. These ladies showed true fortitude ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผโ™ฅ๏ธ. #hikerbabes #womenwhohike #themagnificentseven #nosweat #findyourtribe #lovethemhard

What does an AT hiker do after getting home on their first day home totally alone? Tackle some boat projects of coarse!! That and polishing up the resume and sending that out. If any one is interested in seeing our icebox get transformed stay tuned I will post some videos on my you tube channel. Iโ€™m getting some bids on this project now. Wednesday I am renting a power washer and starting the exterior woodwork restoration project. That is the last beautification project for our Pearsonโ€™s 424 Plan C Cutter. #appalachiantrail #sailing #sailboating #boatprojects #pearson424

When Emma told us she was going on an overnight backpacking trip by herself, we were definitely surprised! However she loved the challenge and learned a lot about surviving and thriving on her own in the wilderness this past weekend. She also needed to train for her big #california backpacking trip in two weeks! #sheinspires us ๐Ÿ˜Š . . . . #hiking #femaleempowerment #strongwomen #solohiking #appalachiantrail #womenwhohike #backpacking

Day 80 - 15.5 miles, milepost 1295.4! Still in Pennsylvania, so no point on referencing the trail๐Ÿคฌ...Last three days have been exhausting and painful on my feet. This trail appears easy, but itโ€™s not. It has a weird way to test you physically and your determination to push on. Iโ€™m definitely ready to see what NJ has to offer. On the positive side, the weather was nice yesterday, a tad warm but nothing unbearable, it did rained the prior night, but we avoided the storm by staying in town in a very sketchy motel, not the best place weโ€™ve stayed, but it kept us dry and warm. Since we had a shorter day we started hiking at our normal time, and we were done by 2:15. After I showered I was very hungry and was ready to eat, but shortly after that I got this awful sinus headache out of nowhere. I went outside and rested on a bench, took a little catnap. The rest of the group went on to eat, but I decided to stay behind and go later... I just wasnโ€™t feeling at my best at that moment. Today, Iโ€™m feeling less congested, but now Iโ€™m dealing with a pesky cough and sinus headachesโ˜น๏ธ. Fortunately, we are taking a much needed zero today - Iโ€™m looking forward to a lazy day, recover and fuel up on town food before we start our journey into Jersey. #xiscohikes . . . . . . . . . #hiker #hiking #backpacking #thetrek #trektheat #atclassof2019 #at2019 #appalachiantrail #appalachiantrail2019 #atstrong #thruhike #camping #peoplewhohike #appalachianhikers #nature #senderismo #caminos #adventure #outdoors #wanderlust #keepitwild #hikertrash #withguthook #hiker #hikingadventures #travel #photography #wildernessculture #naturephotography #explore

Day 18: 5/19/19 0 miles Today ended up a zero! Good chance to rest my feet and hang out with new friends. There was a thunderstorm in the evening that took out the power in our hotel for a bit!

Trail seeking is a bit of a hopeless wanderers pursuit. Iโ€™m in constant fascination by the fact that a dirt line in the earth can be so compelling. Extreme psych for climbing at the moment might lead me away from long distance hiking for a bit. The allure however is forever unfading.

An unforgettable outdoor weekend with the best of friends and our favorite pups! - #dominionriverrock #blueridgemountains #appalachiantrail #boldrock #devilsbackbone #rva

AT Thru Hike | Day 54 | May 20th | Daily Miles: 20.2 | Total Miles: 669.0 Simms Gap Campsite >> War Spur Shelter Today sucked. I went to bed last night with a sore throat and woke up coughing up a lung, and was perpetually out of energy all day. I chock it up to coming down from Trail Days, but it seemed like a combination of a lot of things to knock me down so badโ€ฆ Itโ€™s 7:30 and Iโ€™m going to bed. Enjoy the photos Thorn: Feeling like dogshit from head to toe and not enjoying this otherwise really gorgeous day Rose: It could have been way worse, and this will pass. It was also really nice pigging out for dinner and dropping food bag weight, plus whatever I came down with didnโ€™t touch my intestinal tract, which is a blessing through-and-through . . . . . #appalachiantrail #at2019 #thruhiker #atthruhiker2019 #georgiatomaine #game #atclassof2019 #livingthedream #trektheat #hiketheat #getoutside #getoutdoors #livelifeoutside #findyouradventure #withguthook #funemployment #earlyretirement #letsrollbutthole #hikertrash #trailmagic #hiking #backpacker

"To me, Uncle Johnny's is home. Everyone here is family and has been since I first hiked in here in January of 2017. Everytime I come back here I feel so welcome and in place. The chill vibe that we promote is amazing and the hikers really seem to enjoy themselves. I feel fortunate, privileged and blessed to be a part of this legendary place and I feel very honored to be here helping out hikers on their AT journey" -Echo, staff member at Uncle Johnny's.

Amazing weekend with my parents and siblings for a 40-mile hike along the Appalachian Trail. 75K steps, 279 flights climbed in 20 straight hours. 180 total miles of hiking since January. Canโ€™t wait for our next reunion! #appalachiantrail

During this section of the AT we climbed up to see all the balds. This was our view from Siler Bald! . . . #appalachiantrail #sectionhikers #silerbald #viewfromthetop #360views #northcarolinahikes #itwasworththeclimb

Got my photo taken at the @appalachiantrail headquarters in Harpers Ferry - they put these into binders that stay there and can be looked back on forever - we pulled out old binders and found Easyโ€™s professor and his wife from 1997, and even located a @zrdavis lookalike in 2011! The red number on the top references that number thruhiker I am to have arrived (section hikers are in a different color). I never got an AT tag at the start of the hike because the Amicalola visitor center was closed at 7am when we started, so Iโ€™ve never known what number I was to start the trail, but now I know Iโ€™m the 166th to make it to Harpers Ferry ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Part 3: @traildays_festival off the @appalachiantrail ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘‰ for those who donโ€™t know, tragedy struck for a couple of the hikers off the Appalachian trail this year as one hiker was killed and one person escaped a crazed person. This is a trail of unity โญ•๏ธ and love ๐Ÿ’• and while this was disheartening and heartbreaking, the hikers came together at trail days for this candlelight vigil, drum ๐Ÿฅ circle and celebration of these hikers lives. The words spoken here hit me deep and made me realize how comforting community can be in the face of tragedy; โ€œthe parents said they were alone when this happened, but after receiving so much support from the trail community, they realized their children were not truly alone through the outpouring of support and love of their fellow hikersโ€ #appalachiantrail #appalachianmountains #appalachiantrail2019 #traildays #traildays2019 #hikertrash #hiker #hikergirl #hikerbabes #hikersofinstagram #thruhiking #thruhike #thruhiker #atstrong #pct2019 #pct #cdt2019 #cdt #athiker #at2019

The face you make when youโ€™re done with your first year of grad school! ๐Ÿคฏ This semester has been tough. I went from writing 3 craft essays last semester to 10 this semester (which means reading 10 books & writing about them). See why Iโ€™ve been MIA from the internets? Plus writing my manuscript & other stories. I love writing & reading and I enjoy the solitude but at times it converts to loneliness & I itch to get out and hike or climb with people!!! Stay tuned for this summer cause Iโ€™ll finally be back to my hiking, kayaking, traveling self. And adding first time backpacking to that! If you wanna join next monthโ€™s hike with @latinaswhohike, click on Get Tickets on my profile for more info!

My Appalachian Trail hiking boots. These are a perfect fit FOR ME. Everyone should try on their shoes and find the right style for them. I was actually not expecting to by the high top version especially since Im used to hiking in tennis shoes but the support around my ankle takes away from the weight towards the bottom of the shoes. The inside feels like a sleeping bag for my feet. Soooo comfy. I fell in love with the soles. That is what reeled me in to begin with. Perfect for wet rocks, mountains, hills, grass, pretty much everything. Plus they will last my entire trip from Amicalola to Damascus.

Spent some time this weekend at the Appalachian Trail Days Festival in Damascus, Virginia, and then a day hike on the Appalachian Trail in Grayson Highlands State Park with the wild ponies! Best.

In the wake of the horrific murder on the Appalachian Trail, the AT has community remained strong. What does it mean to be AT Strong? It means we continue to stand together and support each other. We continue to look out for each other and have each otherโ€™s back any way possible. We continue to hike and protect this trail, but do it now in honor of a fallen hiker. It means that fear will not hold us back from pursuing our dreams and passions. We Are AT Strong. #appalachiantrail #appachiantrail2019 #atstrong #inmemoryofstronghold @start_at_the_arch

#repost with @get_repost ใƒปใƒปใƒป@sweet.hiking I'm choosing to stay low carb when I hike the AT SOBO this #summer.

It all started last Tuesday, May 14th at the foot of Amicalola Falls in Georgia. Six days ago my buddy Nate and I started a Five month journey extending from Georgia to Maine, the Appalachian Trail. 2,192.0 miles of harsh and beautiful terrain stretching across Fourteen states. Last night we checked one of those states off and stayed the night at Bly Gap. Goodbye Georgia hello North CarolinaโœŒ - - - #throughhiking #appalachiantrail #hiking #summergoals

Sometimes you find yourself wondering if blazes on the Appalachian Trail are real. Here, for instance, where the trail seems to disappear, only to go from a rock scramble to a small tunnel. #appalachiantrail #hike #greysonhighlands #picoftheday #outdoors

Last night we had the opportunity to celebrate the retirement of the guy right there between my two boys in the photo. โ €โ € His name is Dennis Runyon and heโ€™s been leading the same Scout Troop for 27 years! โ €โ € During his years of service: โญ๏ธhe has spent 700 days camping (thatโ€™s literally two years of his life!) โญ๏ธhe has hiked over 1,000 miles of the Appalachian Trail; and โญ๏ธheโ€™s been leading Scouts every Monday night for as long as his daughter has been alive! โ €โ € Thatโ€™s serious dedication! โ €โ € We feel truly blessed to have been able to know Dennis and to have him lead our boys through adolescence. Itโ€™s remarkable and humbling to see someone give so much of themselves and to be so good at it. โ €โ € Thanks, Dennis, for all you have done and will continue to do! . . . . . #teachingfromrest #motivation #reflectiongram #youbeyou #instagood #livelife #thehappynow #hikingfun #liveauthentic #livethelittlethings #scouts #boyscouts #boyscoutsofamerica #bsa #troop14 #chestercounty #chestercountycouncil #appalachiantrail #thankyou #grateful #family #retirement #volunteer #volunteerism #volunteerlove #makingadifference #nonprofit #giveback #brothers #dedication
