Mouse only hiked about 77 miles in 10 days, of course I say that from the comfort of my couch! I’ve hiked 0 miles in 10 days. But, she’s waited on the guys, some friends from home came to visit and for the first time in 2 years she not only took a double 0, she did it twice! She sure was ready to hike and sleep in the woods though. Here are some current pictures and a few videos of the past few days.

There ya go, another week on the Appalachian Trail. Mouse is back with D and Worm now. She only has about 600 miles left. I know that sounds like a lot and it is. But, when you see it on the AT map and think about how many miles she’s hiked, she’s definitely in the home stretch. She’s meeting her hiking buddies from last year in the next few weeks. That will be a great reunion. And I imagine we’ll be heading to Georgia in about a month to pick her up. But let’s not get ahead, can’t wait to see pictures from the next 600 miles. Last year Mouse hiked the southern area in the spring and all the trees were bare. This year is will be fall and I’m sure the colors will be spectacular. We’re looking forward to those pictures. Enjoy the next few weeks Mouse, happy trails . . .
