Apollo thru-hiker

Trail Name: Apollo*
Summit Date: October 3rd

*Note from Apollo: “I summited Oct 3rd but skipped too many miles, 391 in south VA due to injury, to be a 2,000 miler. Its most likely that I won’t make up those miles this year. I sure feel like a thru-hiker, though, and that’s what counts for me. I’ve never tried to hide what I’ve skipped and don’t expect that you’ll put this photo up.”
