well, you know what they say, better late than never....
Work took a bit longer than i expected but chance has made a good thing even better.
Leaving for mount Greylock (massachusttes) tommorow. Meeting up with a group of freinds who are already on the trail and will be traveling with them until somewhere around allentown PA i think. That is where they will be returning and then i will be continuing on to springer mountain.

Thankfully i got my pack down to just over 60 lbs, and purchased a G24 powercurve (solar charger...now if i can figure out how to get the phone to download pics)

Im on a roll good thing it is just the beginning of the trip and i am still working out the kinks...so to speak.
Pack was way to heavy so i donated some of my stuff to the Upper Goose Pond Cabin where i started my trip.

It was so nice i decided to wait around for my freinds who never showed up, double zeros right off the bat....
but the frsh spring water and the crystal clear lake along with the good company made the first two days great, unfortunately the solar recharger i bought doesnt work for much so i had to take another 0 today to stop in town and charge all my batteries, unfortunately the computer i am using doesnt allow me to download pics and the attendant at the library doesnt know the admin pass to allow me, maybe next stop...

P.S. my fishing skills are not the best but the fish i caught at the lake were the best bass i have eaten in a long time, even tried sunfish for the first time, not much meat even on the big ones but they were tasty too

Sounds like you are having a good time so far and working out the kinks along the way. Stay Safe and I'll keep checking back on this post. I find it interesting hearing your updates.

well i failed...
injured myself on the first day, and while i managed to make it 28 additional miles (upper goose pond to Great Barrington MA.) i bailed out, hitched a ride to town and took a bus home, its actually been a few weeks since then and yes i have been ignoring this thread but i figured i should end it....

Here's to my next attempt (march 2014 @ springer mountain)
