Gilligan on the AT Revisited: 26-Aug-1993

Date August 26, 2008

This is a 5-month long series of blog posts that are the entries in my journals written on most evenings as I hiked the Appalachian Trail in 1993. The journal entry appears first — indented — and then any additional commentary from my 15-years-removed perspective follows.

8/26/93 – Thur.

Last entry for a bit. I made it to Killington, VT, last night & today did 21.3 miles to get me to VT 12, where Julie is to meet me. As I write, I sit on the side of the road and hope that she is the reason for this being a short entry.

Tomorrow, I am going to slackpack about 13 miles and then head to Boston for the weekend (MIT rush).

[Omitted: a couple of paragraphs about the stress I was generating in Julie’s family due to the hike and her frequent trips out to meet up with me.]

No more entries until Monday night.

    We often wondered what Julies’s parents were thinking but don’t recall that we ever discussed that with them. We, of course, knew where you were headed.
