Harper's Ferry is the psychological halfway point. Today, in Sky Meadows State Park I saw a sign saying 'Harper's Ferry 32.8 miles.' I cried. I am almost halfway to Mnt K. I am almost halfway there.
I am pushing on through days of being achy all over. I am pushing through weeks with more days of rain then sun. I am pushing through meals so awful mice beg for the dinner mint first.
I am over coming myself and working with the trail to get to the next point. Every day has a goal. Every week has a rest point and a point of achievement.
Not a day goes by when I don't think taking time away was a waste. My job us to walk, only walk. I get up. I pack my gear, all my belongings into the Crown Vic (Granite Gear Crown 60 backpack). Then I start to walk.
I've walked nearly a thousand miles. In the next two or three days I will have. In the next 2 to 5 days I will cross both the psychological and the physical halfeay points.
Hike on. Keep hiking...
