My name is Kenny and this is my second Long Trail hike! The first one was in 2015 and while I never thought I would go back, the Long Trail of beautiful Vermont calls! Even louder of a call is from the charity for which I have chosen to raise funds ... more

Itinerary is set!

Asheville, NC - Mile 0 - Jun 14th, 2018

As of last weekend, I have set my itinerary! I cannot wait to leave August 20th, flying out of Charlotte NC and hitting Albany NY that afternoon. Will likely get a ride over to North Adams MA and stay at a motel and HIT THE TRAIL the morning of August 21! It is really interesting to be looking ahead to this trail a 2nd time - the first time I can remember being pretty nervous never have done a thru hike before. This time I know the trail, terrain, and what kind of pace I need to make it through. The Long Trail is so special, I like it because its DO-able in a month, has a wide variety of terrain from literal rock/mountain climbing to mud puddles to suspension bridges to just plain walking paths. You may not know it is the oldest footpath in the country, discovered long before the AT. Still a good deal to plan, food planning is really the next hurdle. I send out 4 mail drops filled with 5-7 days worth of non-perishable mostly dehydrated food, because you can only carry a week of food at most. I am set to stop and rest in Bromley, White River Junction, Waitsfeild and Stowe. I literally cannot wait to get up there! Oh, we are at about $4,480 in pledges - just $500 to go in 8 weeks. Asheville peeps I will have an info table at the South Asheville ACE Hardware all day on June 30th - stop by !
Love,
