On the Appalachian Trail in 1999
The Appalachian Trail is a 2,165 mile footpath running from Springer Mountain in Georgia to Katahdin in Maine. I started my thruhike of the entire trail on Springer Mountain on March 17th, 1999, earned my trail name, Stitches, in April, and completed my thruhike on Katahdin on September 29. My entire journal is here for you to read.
