I’m getting pretty psyched about going back to hike again. It’s been a while and hitting the trail will be nice. I’ll be going back to Duncannon to start off right where I left off last March.
Watching Vlogs has kept me in touch with the trail. The two I’ve been following are Darwin on the Trail (https://darwinonthetrail.com) and Homemade Wanderlust (homemadewanderlust.com). Darwin and Dixie are both AT thru hikers and are currently out on the PCT (Pacific Coast Trail) and CDT (Continental Divide Trail) respectively. I met Dixie in Vermont when I was hiking the AT in 2015.
Check out their YouTube channels (search for Darwin on the Trail and Homemade Wanderlust on YouTube). Both are about 2 weeks into thru hikes and are hiking strong.
I also checked the weather for when I start and it’s FABULOUS! I’ve typically started in extreme hot, cold or pouring rain. Here’s the Wunderground prediction for central PA in one week when I start:
Goal for this hike: Hike strong and don’t let adversity set me back.
I’ll be blogging daily starting next Tuesday from the AT in PA.

PS – It’s raining this week so there should be water. That’s of utmost importance.
