We are currently at NOC. We need to bypass the Smokeys because of unusually deep snow and ice conditions, particularly at higher elevations. We will hike them after we finish up in Maine. We need to ask that users read references to sponsors as people who were kind enough to give us gifts.

We made Neil’s Gap, AKA Mountain Crossings yesterday. We had to hold up at the Hiker Hostel in WOody Gap and wait for the weather to clear up. Ice slowed us down but we’re picking up the pace. I’ll post more as time and signal access permit.

Thanks to those of you who posted comments for your support and encouragement. I will update this blog as time and access to the internet permit.

We will fly out of Minneapolis to Atlanta, GA on March 3. We have reservations at the Hiker Hostel for March 3 and hope to hit the trail near Springer Mountain on March 4. Packing and last minute preparations are going well.
