Introduction

Hi, my name is Macgyver, but you might also know me as Macaroni, Mac, or Terminator. I’m a smelly thru-hikers who has hiked 1495.3 miles of the Appalachian Trail, currently in the town of Salisbury, CT.

I enjoy:
Long walks in the woods
Showers
Doing laundry
Roofs
And food

My dislikes include:
Long walks in the woods
Mosquitoes
Rain
Mosquitoes
Chaffing
And mosquitoes

But really, the bugs have gotten so much worse in the last week and a half. It’s nice getting back into some mountains after so much time on flattish ground, but these bloodsuckers make it almost not worth it.

It’s been a while, so here’s a quick recap. New Jersey was way more beautiful than I expected. We saw tons of wildlife there. New York offered some cool views, and two of the most amazing zeroes I have taken. We got some awesome trail magic and support from up and coming trail angels (thanks Scott and Kath!) Connecticut has had some more cool trail magic, cute little towns, and pretty trails, but lots of mosquitoes.

More updates soon.

    Did a small section of the AT from Waywayanda State Park in NJ headed towards Bear Mtn. I remember the terrain being a lot of ups and downs, but some cool views of the Hudson Valley. Hope you enjoyed it. Deet it up!
