Thru Hikers on the Appalachian Trail
Last Saturday I took my husband’s place running shuttle for 3 fellows - two from Georgia and the other from Chicago - thru hiking the Appalachian Trail. For those of you who are not familiar with the trail, it goes from Springer Mountain, Georgia, to Mt. Katahdin, Maine, approximately 2,172 miles. They had gotten off Friday about 20 miles from town, hitched a ride into Lexington for a good night’s rest, bought some new things from Buddy where he works at Walkabout Outfitters, and then I ran them back to the trail to resume their hike. This was my first shuttle run, and it was so interesting talking to the guys about their experiences and the sights they had seen. They have a long ways to hoof it to get to Mt. Katahdin, and I’m so happy it’s them doing the walking and not moi!
