This afternoon, after walking for nearly five months I summited the northernmost mountain on the AT! I was joined by my wife and trail boss, Katie. I was lucky to have relatively good weather and the company of two awesome trail friends, Lemmy and Voldemort who I met back in the very first hundred miles, a lifetime ago in trail terms.
Katie and I will take a couple of days to drive home, where I will eat and rest and eat and wash and eat. After I eat some more I will finally have time to go back and fill in some more details missing from the last few short updates here. I'll take a few days off and then begin working full time on the book. For now, sleep calls and will not take "no" for an answer.
