Friendly Mr. Bearington stopped by to remind us all of the importance of LNT. Photo courtesy of @dontdoitkidd.
Got my bear encounter – he was one aggressive bear. 8 or 9 of us camped at Gravel Sprints and he walked right up, trying to get to the food that day hikers had left in the fireplace over the last couple days. Seemed completely unfazed by the humans yelling at him and banging pots and sticks. Eventually he left and hid by a tree, thinking “there’s no way they’ll see me here!” while waiting for his chance to get back in to the food. THIS is why we practice LNT and pack out what we pack in.. When people leave food and bears get accustomed to it, they begin to rely just on humans and can get more aggressive, leading to their relocation and sometimes worse consequences. Don’t be an idiot, pack out what you pack out. Pretty cool bear though. #appalachiantrail #appalachiantrials #nobo #AT2015

Tent City always provides an interesting experience. Photo courtesy of @bryanconley.
Day 44 on the Appalachian Trail Things tend to get a bit wild at Trail Days, and even more so when giant bonfires are involved. Thanks for the good times everyone. Now back to the trail. I have 1,800 more miles to hike before October.

Thanks to everyone for all the birthday wishes yesterday. Had a pretty righteous outro to my twenties at Trail Days in Damascus, VA. There was a giant bonfire at the end of the last night with a couple hundred half-naked, drunk people chanting and dancing. Felt kinda like being in a Mad Max movie or something. #AppalachianTrail #appalachiantrials #lifeproof
