AT Thru-Hike Day 79

Boonsboro Mountain Road (1,300 feet) mile 1,047.7 to Buena Vista Road (1,294 feet) mile 1,068.1 for a 20.4 mile day.

Today was not a good day, at the start at least. We left John by the him, make sure you bring towels when you come back to get us, we will be wet!!

We stepped out of the car into the pouring rain, we strapped on our day packs full of food and water and we headed north. So, these may get a little personal in the wrong area but, I’ll try to keep it light. My normal 💩 cycle is early morning, today we left the house early and the 💩 was on time but I was in the woods! Well, that means digging a cat hole, a 4-6 inch deep hole that then has to be roped. Remember now, it’s raining! The urge hits, I walk off trail “200 feet”, in the rain and dig my hole… now I’ve covered my hole and walk back to trail and head north again. Here is why this story is even being told, I get 100 yards up the trail, imagine a football field, and there is a privy!!!!!!!! A random privy in the woods!!!!! Well 💩!!! Haha

Nonetheless, I’m sure everyone of you reading this enjoyed that story, but it’s about all of the excitement for that day.

That is not totally true! There was other excitement! We had a few views today, one of which has, for some reason, become a graffiti haven for the locals.

High Rock

Oh and you know what else?? For many many miles, almost since I started this journey, hang gliding has not been allowed, but today, feel free to hang glide my friends!!!

We continued on with our day and came to not only a view but also another state line. Maryland consists of 41 miles of trail and today we completed that last mile and walked into and aptly named town, PenMar, Pennsylvania. If you still don’t get that one, Pennsylvania Maryland.

PenMar Park

Well, when you cross into Pennsylvania, you are entering the North, crossing the MasonDixon Line.

I learned why Pennsylvania is called the keystone state! If you know already, you can skip this part, although this is the end!The keystone is the center stone at the top of an arch.

Pennsylvania was said to be the center “stone” in between the North and the South.
