Update! On my beardy-friend, Andrew, thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail.
He called me yesterday and said he’s in Hot Springs, NC. He’s having the time of his life and he wishes I could be there. Breaking my heart!
“I’ve met so many awesome people. Awesome old people, awesome young people.”
I feel like that’s going to be one of the best parts of the trail, the connections you make. My friend is a natural runner so he’s making incredible time. He busts out big miles every day so he should be in VA soon. I’m going to join him when he gets closer for a little bit.
Anyway, just thought I’d share. If you meet someone trail-named House out there, give him a hug for me and maybe some food. Have a good one, guys!
