A year ago today, I started my thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail. I want to keep this short…so here goes my attempt at short. The Appalachian Trail will always be a special place for me. When I look back at photos or my close friend’s artwork of those photos, I get emotional, left in astonishment that actually did happen. It was the type of experience I don’t think I’ll ever be able explain ever fully. My go-to for a while was that had it had its up and downs, figuratively and literally. I had some of my most strenuous and best days of my life on the trail.
Anyway, I am so very thankful to the community, my family, and friends who supported me through my journey. I will never forget the generosity (The kind that really makes you reflect), refreshing (!!!), open-minded, supportive, charismatic, insanely awesome people I’ve crossed paths with. To all who I have met on and off trail, thank you for being.
As for the completion of the blog, I plan to complete it. I lately have just not had the free time.
