Twenty-One Days

Got off the Long Trail on Wednesday after 21 days and 275 miles. My grandma picked me up at the trail and after a delicious lunch at an organic cafe in Newport, VT we drove up to Lac Memphremagog in Quebec for a wonderful day/night’s rest. Spent Thursday driving to Kennebunk, ME with stops at Bleu Lavande, Newport, and even Franconia Notch for a little trail magic. In Kbunk through Monday for much-needed R & R 🙂 In between laundry, the beach, biking, and touring Dock Square I’ll be posting my trail journal. Keep an eye out for it!

  1. Hey!

    I’m happy to hear you got back from the trip safely! I tried to email you with the address you gave my mom (yes, this is the daughter half of the mother/daughter duo you met near Sugarbush), but it came back as undeliverable.

    It was awesome to meet you, and congratulations on finishing the Long Trail!!

  2. I tried emailing you but i am not sure you got this:

    Hi Goji,

    It was so nice of you to leave a note at the Land’s End camp. I hope that you have recovered by now.

    Russ (King Biscuit) & I also finished on 8/11 as did Mzee & Mudfoot
    (the older guy & his kid). We all finished about 4:30.

    The two guys (Rocky & Bobo?) did not leave a message, but I presume that they also finished on 8/11.

    Todd & Marilyn hiked on farther than Russ & I did on the 10th. We left Jay Camp at 6 am on the 11th& caught up to them about 9:30. They were eating breakfast. They passed us just before Shooting Star & we all had lunch there. We left before them but they passed us again & presumably finished & hiked out.

    That was quite a date as 7 of us (that I am aware of) finished on 8/11.

    I looked up your trail name on facebook but there were 500 people listed. I went through the first 100 but none were obviously you. I am listed under Mike Cunningham or Hikermiker but I actually seldom go on it. If you wish to friend me I will eventually respond. My avatar is a headshot of me on Mount Monadnock with my Long Trail Ale hat on.

    I had the thought that you may have some trouble readjusting to the “real world”. Many people do. There is some good advice on pmags.com & a quote from Cindy Ross in the Spring issue of the Aldha Newsletter. (I am the editor). You should be able to find it at http://www.aldha.org or I can email you a copy.

    I readjust by never going completely back to the “real world” My cubicle at work is filled with hiking trail maps and cartoons & I try to run on trails 3 times a week & hike 3 times a week. I carry my work stuff in a knap sack. I guess I am a pretty sad case. You may not want to correspond with me. Hahahaha.

    I am unhappily back at work now.

    Happy trails,

    Hikermiker.
