Continuing After Trail Days

With the rains returned, the quiet of nature helps me adjust to the aftershock of Trail Days. The weekend was packed with amazing and wonderful reunions, bands, gear vendors, activities, and food. I’m thankful every day for the community of thru-hikers and those who support our hikertrash ways.

Where else in the world can you find this kind of family? Even 2015 thru-hiker Dixie, Homemade Wanderlust on YouTube, referred to the Appalachian Trail with nostalgia as she regrets not having a similar group of supporters on the Pacific Crest Trail.  We are united in a single, wonderful adventure and it all culminated in that one moment.

What’s next? Harper’s Ferry, I suppose. And then onward. Ever forward.
