    David Lesser Memorial Shelter 1014.4

    July 2, 2017 in the United States

    Crazy!!! 1000 miles by foot :) But the last few weeks have been intense. Yesterday was the first time that I arrived at our final stop in daylight. Today the seventh day in a row that we made 20 or more miles. We're now just looking forward to relax tomorrow at Harper's Ferry and to celebrate that we achieved our goal.
    To make it to here we needed to ride the Rollercoaster today. It's called like this because it is "a series of steep ascends and descends". But for our trained hiker legs it wasn't too much of a challenge and for lunch we were already almost through it. Another remarkable thing that happened today is crossing the border from Virginia to West Virginia. Virginia has been in general really good to us but not as "easy" and "flat" as everyone liked to describe it.

    For dinner we stopped at the Blackburn AT Center and enjoyed a more than necessary free shower. Another night hike later we ended up at the Shelter about 8.6 miles before the Appalachian Trail Headquarters :) And we're almost out of food, just two cereal bars and a bit of trail mix left. Starvation as motivation always works :)

    Harpers Ferry 1023.7

    July 3, 2017 in the United States

    On the way to our personal goal we started early and super motivated to Harper's Ferry. The first part was quite an easy hike and we moved pretty quickly. After the breakfast we got slower because Julia's knee started to hurt with every step. And the last part before Harper's Ferry went over the Shenandoah River along a highway which was extremely humid and loud. As we arrived at the Appalachian Trail Headquarters I finally got my thru hiker hangtag :) And we registered ourselves to the official book of the thru hikers. We raided the hiker box there for a pack of Ramen Soup and then enjoyed a coffee and achieving our goal. I quickly went to the post office as our trail angel Sketch had sent us a care package with Elevation bars :)
    Outside of the headquarters we met a nice guy named Corn Chips. We chatted a bit about the trail and the challenges we've already overcome. He offered us to stay with him in the Town's Inn as he rented a room there with several beds. We gladly accepted the offer because we didn't have any place to stay yet and the hostel is about five miles away the center. He told us a bit about his volunteer work as a fire fighter and medic.
    After a small lunch we relaxed at the hotel, washed our clothes and sorted our stuff. We went to a restaurant in the evening with Corn Chips and Honeybadger but after two burgers I was still hungry, so we walked about two miles to a 7/11 and got us some treats :)

    Harpers Ferry ...

    November 23, 2017 in the United States

    ist eine Stadt auf der rechten Seite des Potomac, die allerlei Geschichten aus dem Bürgerkrieg zu erzählen hat. Zwei Eisenbahnbrücken führen hinüber, davon eine mit einem Fußgängerweg. Also das Fahrrad entladen und die Treppe zur Brücke hinauf.
    Ich habe ein Zimmer in der Stadt gemietet. Heute ist Thanksgiving, und die Leute haben das Haus voller Besuch. Auch ich bekomme noch ein Stück vom Truthahn und ein Bier.Read more

    Harpers Ferry

    August 31, 2015 in the United States

    This was the first time I got to use my America the beautiful pass. The security lady was super nice and punched out September for me, since they forgot to do it when I bought it. I was originally going to do a hike to get to a scenic view, but instead I met Anne and we walked the Appalachian trail going North for a while. We also cane across 5 backpackers on the trail. We talked to all of them for a little while. Two were hiking together said they had been out for two weeks and did about 200 miles already.Read more
