    He is putting the miles behind himself very fast. He has commented he would love to be on MW for STP - but, he does not plan that far in advance.

    It would be very nice if the timing works out for this.

    Could he conceivably make it to MWN by STP?

    Would that leave him about another month to finish from there? Seems very fast.

    Goose MUST be on Kathadin first week of August. By my estimates, he needs to be past MW by the time STP comes.

    As of 12:40 PM EDT on 5/21/11... Goose OFFICIALLY had an equal number of trail miles ahead of him as he did behind! Now the counting down begins.

    I was honored and privileged to host Goose, Yard Sale AKA Jelly Pants and Always Fine at the family cabin. They consumed enough calories there to complete the trek.

    That's Mark behind Goose. He started out with a trail name of Jelly Pants after dripping Jelly on his pants. While staying at the family cabin, he discovered an awesome pair of hiking pants for seventy-five cents at a nearby YARD SALE. So, we all think his trail name should be changed to YARD SALE. What say you? The poll on Facebook is 12:1 in favor of YARD SALE.

    Charlie created a feast for the Thru-Hikers and everyone else in attendance.

    The support team after a short and "quick" six mile hike from Shippensburg Road to the official midway point.

    The "Half Gallon Challenge" at Pine Grove Furnance. We helped, but just a little, LOL!
