Appalachian Trail Hikes

Appalachian Trail NOBO 2023 – This is my big hike this year and probably my last on the AT. I wanted to go home one more time. I keep a journal here, over at, and keep my social media updated fairly frequently. The social media links are at the top of this page above the main menu.

Appalachian Trail SOBO 2013

Appalachian Trail NOBO 2005 – Limited journal may be added in time.

Appalachian Trail SOBO – 1998

I was born in the southeast, so the Appalachian Trail (AT) introduced me to backpacking. The rugged Appalachians are where I “broke my teeth” and my feet.

I hiked the AT SOBO in 1998 and NOBO in 2005 and did a SOBO section from Katahdin in Maine to Highpoint, NJ, in 2013.

I love the mountain ranges and trails out West, but the Appalachians will always be “home.”

I did not keep a journal in 1998 and a minimal journal in 2005, but I’ve included journal entries from 2013.
