Here we are! We summited Mt. Katahdin on 9-11-12 at 11:00 a.m. after waiting for six days. The 11th is Nokey’s birthday and we wanted to wait for that day. After taking about 45 zeros on the trail, we finished the trail in 5.5 months for me and six months, 1 day for Nokey. I’ve been working on getting my videos posted, but the formatting issues are giving me problems. I’ll be doing some blogging and photo updates in the next several days.
I wanted to thank everyone who supported me on my thru hike, friends, family, and co-workers alike. It meant a lot to me to get into town and have emails, texts, and voicemails from so many of you consistently throughout my trip. There were times on the trail when I wanted nothing more than to just quit and come home. There were other times I’d be angry with myself for ever doubting my abilities. I’ve grown and changed a lot as a person in the past few months and I’m already looking forward to my next adventure, wherever it may take me!
