Hit the (Appalachian) Trail: Black and White Sunday

If at first you don't succeed...

Last year the males (including Toby) were supposed to complete a 10-day, 100 mile hike in the Shenandoah Mountains. Walking the Appalachian Trail by day, pitching a tent and eating jerky and Mountain House by night. 
Meanwhile us ladies (me and Amber) relaxed by the pool at a fancy bed and breakfast near the trailhead. We like backpacking too, but not for 10 days. On the third day we were called in to rescue the men-in-distress, to their chagrin, but hey, safety first. They wisely chose safety over pride.

...try again!
Kevin is bravely smiling while shivering. Toby looks baffled. "Haven't we been here before?" In B&W the trailhead looks as dreary as it felt on Friday. 
Ted, Kevin, and Toby have rebooted the adventure. It was raining, windy, and an unseasonable 56 degrees - not ideal for starting a long trip. But so far - no news is good news and they are still out there somewhere on the Appalachian Trail!


And they're off!

Blogger ate my comment! I'll keep it short this time! I can't wait to hear updates on their progress. What a grand adventure!

Amy said...

I sure hope so!

Amy said...

Haha the shower issue is what keeps me out of it.
Well, and probably too slow to cover 13+ miles a day.

Oh sorry your comment was lost! I'm going to update tomorrow, a not-so-wordless Wednesday :)
