    Karl's feet after eight days. Do you think he'll make it to Springer?

    Maybe you should change your byline to:

    Or, how about; "There are many people in this world...not all will agree with your own sense of humor!"

    I am amazed at how people are able to do the whole AT - either direction. I would love to do it, but it will probably never happen. So, my hat is off to anyone who has done it or is doing it - in any manner they wish. It is still a staggering feat (both puns intended).

    What Karl is trying to do is amazing and if he does pull it off I will be surprised. He has already been through some tough territory. The next few days will be brutal. Then he has to endure doing it over and over every day. It would be nice to be in good shape again.

    I will stick with my high energy sport being waterskiing.

    According to the site he's east of Glen House... this mean he will cross NW today?

    [edit]

    Found this pic on the photo stream. Comment says he'll be on the mount tomorrow. Do any of the web cams catch the AT?

    I could only endure those long distance trails by doing it as fast as possible. Sleeping in a camper every night wouldn't hurt either. I'd put the Long Trail on my list, but only because I think I could slash the usual month long trek to less than two weeks. Doing it section by section would be bearable too.

    To be honest, sleeping on the ground is of little interest to me. Maybe that will change the day somebody makes a comfortable sleeping pad. Camping is a means to an end, not something I'd do just because.

    Not being a betting person, I won't put money on it, but my thought is Karl will be sleeping in his camper in the Wildcat parking lot tonight, heading out at daylight or a little before. The first mile stretch of the AT leaving PNVC will be a good wake-up sprint to get his blood moving ( Old Jackson Rd).



    Holey Mackerel.


    Blessings on ya Karl, don't put a foot down wrong!.

    Karl's plan for tomorrow (Thursday, 8-14-08) is to hike from Pinkham to Franconia Notch, 53.6 miles! I will definitely be watching his progress.
