In 2015, during my Thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail, I naturally covered the southernmost 100 miles of the Long Trail as the LT and AT overlap for the first 100 miles northbound from Massachusetts. When I saw the white blazes of the LT diverge northward at the Maine Junction near Killington last summer, I was not thinking very seriously that I wanted to walk that way. There was still a lot of the AT to go.
It has been many months since I finished at Mt. Katahdin and frankly I have sorely missed the feeling of being out in the woods living the long distance hiker's daily routine. So, I have decided to return to that spot and hike the rest of the Long Trail to the Canadian border. It is about 170 miles more for me to do, and I plan on doing it in one push from July 25, 2016 to August 3, 2016.
Wish me luck!
