Live update

I was off to a good start then got railroaded by blisters. I have mailed a series of journal entries to be posted that will explain more of the story. Needless to say I have been healing from blisters and sore muscles for the last few days in Millinocket. I will be hitting the trail again tomorrow. I have made a few friends in the process and have been having a great time, both on and off the trail. I sent out a few postcards today to a few people and will sent out some more next chance I get. I will be about 8 days out in the woods before my next town stop. I will try to get the itinerary updated but that may not happen.

I am taking lots of pictures and will try to get them off the camera at some point. I should be doing that right now but I forgot the camera back at the hostel. I did get some people to take my picture at the top of Katahdin. To bad the view sucks, I was above the clouds and it was raining that day so no views. I will just have to come back and climb it another day to get pictures of the view. I have already seen a moose, some chipmonks, squirrels, ducks and a deer.

I am having a great time and find the walking in the woods quite peaceful and serene. I look forward to getting back into the woods tomorrow and will take the next few days easier to try to toughen up my feet without blistering them. I also lightened up the pack a little so that should help some.

I'm glad to know that things are going well (minus the knees and the blisters). Hope the trail is going better now with the lighter pack. I can't wait to see some pics. Have you been able to do any writing?

I'll have to write you an e-mail to catch you up on everything that's been going on here. In short, I'm moving too!
