We passed the midpoint of AT last Friday (yeah, Friday the 13th!). On Saturday, we as teamwork completed half-gallon ice cream challenge in 45 minutes at Pine Grove Furnace General Store. We visited AT museum and met one of volunteers who knew some ASL. Cool! We met Bill Irwin, the first AT blind hiker, at the museum. It was such an honor! We are now hiking toward Duncannon. More details to come once we arrive in Duncannon.

This morning, I am running around like a chicken without its head trying to get things done before going back on the trail.  Got a couple of interview requests, some email and comments to reply to, some updates to blog to do, check and re-check the schedule and list, and etc….ceaseless tasks while hiking!  Funny thing is that some people think long distance hiking is like a vacation.  Okiieee….I invite these people who think like that to come out and hike with us to see what it is really all about!  😎  Anyhow, my apologies if I do not get back to any of you sooner via the blog, email, Facebook, and etc.  Next time when I have actual ZERO zero-day, I hope to dear that I will have time to catch up with my life, loved ones, and friends in the “real world”.  Please bear patient with me. 

Anyhow, for a brief update – we are hiking toward midpoint of Appalachian Trail (1,090.5 miles) Pine Grove Furance State Park. We are so stoked!  We are already over 1,250 miles, but to be physically part of midpoint of Appalachian Trail is even cooler.  We plan to visit the Appalachian Trail musuem there.  Until next time, folks!

Cane’s Uncle Jean and Aunt Rose were able to join us to celebrate our milestone of midpoint/halfway at Blue Benn Diner, 1940’s diner based on diner from Paterson, New Jersey (yay! Can you detect pride of Jersey Girl?!) It was soooo nice to see them again! We left to hike in wet shower on Saturday 16-October.

We arrived in Williamstown, Massachusetts on Sunday 17-October. We were thrilled to complete our hiking in the state of Vermont. We enjoyed its hospitality, new and old friends, foods, and environment.

Upon our arrival in Massachusetts, Cane came down with a cold and some coughing. We stayed at Williamstown Motel for a couple of nights before deciding to hop on the bus going to New York City today. We will decide whether if we want to continue hiking for a few more days or hang up our boots for hiatus until next Spring. We plan to keep you posted.

We are off to hike toward Bennington, Vermont – our midpoint/halfway of our AT expedition (1,089 miles out of 2,179 miles)!!!! We are so stoked! We plan to celebrate this Friday evening in Bennington. Claire S. and her family will join us.  Anyone is welcome to join us as well.  Just drop us an email by this Thursday evening.

We thank from our bottom of hearts to Silver Fox for all of her support with our expedition – staying at her cozy place and having a grand time together at evenings.  We love her.
