I Am a BOBO on the Trail Heading North

So I am sitting in the Doyle, eating an awesome cheeseburger, and I look up and see NOBO-BOBO-SOBO. Now I know northbound and southbound, but not BOBO so I ask Queen Bitch, the bartender, and she says it stands for both bound, or as I have called it, flip-flopper. I then declared myself a BOBO. Cool deal

Trail Name


I got my trail name because every time someone would take my picture I would give them the hook’em sign and say, “Hook’em, Horns.” I am now known on the trail as Hook’em.  Cool deal once again

The Trail


Pennsylvania is known for rocks and so far has lived up to its name. I went though one part called the maze and had a ball. You would go from one blaze (blazes mark the trail with a white-painted rectangle) to the next. There was no trail, so you would figure out yourself the best way to go. I would pay to do it again it was so much fun. My friend Sally Forth got lost. The one mile or so that was kind of a bummer was a creek in the trail  It took time and I got wet and muddy, but as they say on the trail, it is what it is

I will post more sometime soon.

Up next, New Jersey

    You rock Bear Chaser! I agree, trying to do high mileage on my section hike this year was HARD! At our age we need to do the best we can each day and be grateful for the miles we can do. Truffs and I enjoyed getting to know you and pray for your safe hiking!
