Contest is closed.  By the way, Andrew won…

Here’s your chance to win the big one.  Guess what I’ll weigh at the end of the hike.  I’ll weigh myself before I start and then when I leave the trail.  The final weight will be whenever and wherever I stop hiking the 1,000+ miles from Harpers Ferry to Springer Mountain.  The closest guess wins bragging rights.

Summer 2007

Summer 2007

Here’s some initial data:

  • Highest weight as an adult – 288 lbs (December 2014)
  • Lightest weight as an adult – 162 lbs (Summer 1981)
  • Lightest recent weight – 205 lbs (Spring 2007)
  • Current weight – 262 lbs (June 11, 2015)
  • Weight before hike – 261 lbs (June 27, 2015)
  • Weight at end of hike – you guess!

Add your guess as a comment at the bottom of the page under “Leave a Reply”.  Oh yeah, there’s a tie breaker.  Guess how many black bears I will see on the hike.  

You may leave a nickname or alias if you wish.  No guessing after August 1st.

  1. I think you’ll weigh 208 lbs (sorry, C.Miller) and you’ll see no black bears. Only footprints from bears wearing trail shoes.


  2. Brian wants to guess higher than current weight.. I say it depends if you eat the black bears.. So now he wants to guess 209 to beat his dad! 1 black bear.. Hope you get a picture of it!


  3. Great walking puffin. I’m still rooting for you to make it to Springer. Btw… I’m guessing you see no black bears. Also I sent you an email with the photos requested. My taped feet and working solar panel. Stay strong. doc. Many prayers for you.
