The Appalachian Trail

My most recent road trip intersected with the Appalachian Trail. The AT (which is what you call it if you want to sound cool) stretches 2,190 miles (3,524 km) across fouteen states from Springer Mountain in Georgia to Mt. Katahdin in Maine.

    I saw the movie, A Walk in the Woods, and then read the book. That was my first introduction to the difficulty of hiking that trail. The book was better, by the way. 🙂

    I’m so happy to hear you had the same reaction I did to Bill Bryson’s book! I laughed so hard all the way through. He is so funny. Great read. This is a cool picture too Chris! Makes me want to hit the trail! I hope it’s a great day.

      Thank you, Sandra. My dream used to be to cycle across the US. I did some long multi-state tours but never across the whole country. What do say? You and your family want in on this one?

        We’ll follow your progress in the RV that we are daydreaming of purchasing “someday.” We will cheer you on and keep you hydrated, Chris! That’s our dream, to cross country RV the US. Multi-state tours sound amazing! What an accomplishment. My beach cruiser wouldn’t get me far I suspect. 😉

        That’s a deal. With you guys following in the RV, I get a hot shower every night. I don’t know, that could be your thing…to ride a beach cruiser across the US.

      The AT is legendary. I’ve also done sections but in the White Mountains. My dream has been to cycle across the US. Maybe someday we’ll each get to realize our dreams.
