September 9

Day 163 Hurd Brook Tentsite to Kathadin Springs Campsite (13.4 miles) 2184.6 miles total

So this Kathadin thing keeps getting bigger and bigger as I get closer. Weird, huh?!!  

Made it to meeting place with Kris about 2PM. She had been in park doing trail magic. We hung out there for about an hour and a half. Drankles and Twinkle Toes summited today. Good to get their insight into the beast.

I’ve learned that after a fall it takes a bit to figure out what you really hurt. This time it’s my right knee. Must have bruised knee cap because really sore. Walking with a pretty good limp. Going to have to suck it up tomorrow morning!

Next time you hear from me I’ll be finished…finally!

Happy trails!

  3. Pete I am writing this hopefully about the time you are coming down from the summit! It certainly looks like a tough one to go up. Praying that you knee holds out and does not have any damage!
