These photos are from the first of three hikes Young Dave and I went on with our fully packed gear.

 It was sunny and 58, but breezy, which I think did a good job of approximating the weather we will encounter on the trail (fingers crossed). This trail was rated “advanced” with many steep grades. We finished the 9.1 miles in 3 hours and 26 minutes.

This year, I plan to hike my first section of the Appalachian Trail, with the ultimate goal being to complete the entire trail.

The first section will be a southbound hike, from Kent, CT to High Point State Park in New Jersey. My hiking partner, Dave (aka Young Dave) and I plan to cover approximately 120 miles in 8 days, averaging 12-15 miles per day.

In subsequent posts, I will cover our itinerary.
