Leo and I are over half way done with the trail. I was lucky enough to get to go on a vacation to New York City and Washington DC with my family. When I came back to the trail my mom helped me “slackpack,” hiking without your gear, for 5 days. It was a blast! I ate well. Did huge miles. Got to hang with my mom- even though she beat me at Boggle- it was fun. Leo and I are in it for the long haul. Still chipping away with our 15 mile days. Making a point to stop and enjoy ourselves. Second half of this adventure, let’s do it!
