It is done. Every mile from Georgia to Maine. Had to dig deep for this one. Tested me on a lot of levels. An indescribable fire burned inside of me to get this done. The many obstacles just strengthened my commitment. I’m at peace now. One of the greatest experiences of my life. #atthruhike #at2018 #appalachiantrail #trektheat

I wonder how many people’s bucket lists from the beginning of this year are overflowing the fuck over. Don’t you think it’s time to get rid of that bucket and just start living that shit? . .#thetrek#hikertrash#at2018#appalachiantrail#ibtat

June 30th was a very pretty, blue, and warm day. I walked into the Pinkham Notch visitor's center and was blown away at how commercialized this rugged area was. I combed the store for supplies, surrounded by cotton hoodies and highly decorated baseball caps. Fortunately I found the dehydrated food that I needed (since I was clearly not going to be able to hike my intended 18+ miles days) and some new gaiters for my shoes, since the ones I brought with me broke on the Maine boulders. Added bonus, I also grabbed lunch that I didn't cook myself. The single thing that kept me moving was the sugary beverage that I had with my lunch. Those are indispensable on a long distance hike. . . After lunch I struggled to find my way to the AT. All of the signs in the area make no mention to it, and there were no white blazes to be seen. I didn't have Guthook at the time. I asked an employee and they gave me a blank stare. Finally someone said they had seen a white blaze, but it was some distance down another trail. I gave it a chance and eventually started seeing white blazes again. The AMC really needs to figure their shit out and accept that roughly 2000 people a year rely on knowing where to go in the Whites. I did notice their wooden signs that make no mention of the AT were altered by good samaritans to show which way the AT went. It's a shame that the organization in charge of the AT in this area doesn't see it necessary to formally make these changes. But I digress. . . I still remember the climb up Mt. Madison. I remember it taking the better part of 4 hours, no breaks, constantly moving so I don't lose my momentum. I was sweating so much that I looked like I was walking in the rain. People were passing me going down the mountain, some offering words of encouragement and some exclaiming how it looked like I was doing something ridiculous by carrying such a large pack up this steep bouldery slope. I eventually broke the tree line and still had over a mile to the summit, and another half mile to the hut where I would hopefully be allowed to stay the night. . . #at2018 #whitemountains #hiking #backpacking #camping #pretty #mountains #adventure @appalachianmountainclub

This #fbf is brought to you by the #appalachiantrail! Over the summer @ha_p_trails and I hosted a weekend on the AT w/ 8 ladies. I remember going into this trip grumpy and tired from one adventure after another. The last thing I had wanted to do was strap on a 25lb pack and hike. But as soon as my feet hit that dirty and I started talking to the girls, all of that melted away. That is the magic of the trail. I felt invigorated and empowered with each step. Every care in the world just melts away and you are laser focused on the people surrounding you. . . This trip easily makes it into the Top 3 best adventures of 2018. It was just a small taste of Thru-hiker life and I loved it! As I set my intentions for 2019, I know that I want to spend more time section hiking the AT. It has called me from the beginning and still does now! #womenwhohike #wwhambassador #crushinggoals #forceofnature #trailtalk #trailtrash #hikemore #sectionhiking #adventuremore #adventureculture #at2018 #hikingculture #greatoutdoors #optoutside #roamtheplanet #idhikethat #lightweightbackpacking

To everyone who sent me a text to make sure the bears didnt eat me 😂. To all the people who took time out of there day to bring the hiker trash some trail magic. To all the people who pulled over on the side of the road and gave me a ride 🤙🏽. To all the trail angels who gave me time, shelter, and of course a beautiful experience THANK YOU 🙌🏽. Without you the experience wouldn't have been the beautiful one that I will always remember. Also thanks to all the companies that make the gear that helped me with my trip. To all my fellow hiker trash on trail stay strong and know the trail always provides what you need exactly when you need it. 🙌🏽 namaste To all my off trail hiker trash 🤙🏽😝 it was a beautiful walk together, or lunch, or night out in the shelters, or some beers at a hostel 🤗😆 you know all the moments.

Tuesday’s hike up West Mountain in Bear Mountain State Park. This is one of those super fantastic hikes in under two hours. From the Anthony Wayne parking lot, you take the Fawn Trail, make a right (going south) on either the Timp -Torne Trail or The Appalachian Trail depending on which way you want to do the loop. For this hike I went up the AT and down the T-T because it was relatively dry and with the early sunset I knew I’d get great light on the way down. Just a little north of the intersection of the AT and TT is one of my favorite spots on West Mountain because of the east and then west facing vistas within 40 yards of each other. Check out the videos for the west mountain rag – what I call running from the east to the west vistas. #lovethelifeyoulive #orangecountyny #rocklandcounty #harrimanstatepark #bearmountainstatepark #livingthedream #nyhiking #hiking #getoutside #nynjtc #at2018 #appalachiantrail #naturephotography #naturevideo #hikingny #besthikes #westmountain #perkinstower #anthonywayne #traillove #sunset #moss #sunglow #winteriscoming

First-person walking through the snowy forest, good to back on trail. × Day: 229 AT Day: 70 Miles: 25 Injuries: Lingering colds Weather: Cold morning, but Temps got into the high 30s, generally pleasent. Slower going in the snow today, but actually a bit easier than expected (spoiler: not for long). We made good time and headed to Station 19 hostel to warm up and plan the next couple days in the Roan Mountains, which are covered in deep snow. #mmiw #mymountainiswaiting #at2018 #appalachiantrail #sobo #ctc2018 #thruhike #backpacking #takelessdomore #palantepacks #stabilgear #zpacks #altra #liteaf #Virginia

Break spots vary in quality based on current conditions, but T-Rex is unfazed. × Day: 227 & 228 AT Day: 68 & 69 Miles: 26 & 32 Injuries: Couple of colds, fever for the Graduate Day 2 Weather: Chilly mornings in the teens, but otherwise both days around 40 with some sun. We chose to roadwalk a bit following the storm and hoping we could knock these colds. Not much traffic made for decent days, even as I got feverish later on the second day of roadwalking to Hampton. Thanks again to @schweppeshikes and his family for being so awesome hosting us and driving us around, just good people. Also a huge thanks to @haal_music and @squirrelparty for hosting us in Johnson City. Had a great time and was perfect to sleep off the fever and get some great tea and eats. Generosity off the charts the last few days and truly appreciated. #mmiw #mymountainiswaiting #at2018 #appalachiantrail #sobo #ctc2018 #thruhike #backpacking #takelessdomore #palantepacks #stabilgear #zpacks #altra #liteaf #Virginia #tennessee

Being a mother of two preschool aged children IS challenging. I had just recovered from my post pardon depression a year prior to my first solo, but I found that the depression creeped it's way back in every so often. It took my first solo hike for me to discover that there is a direct correlation between lack of time alone in nature and my depression. It took this hike for me to discover my cure. Compromising in all aspects of life is the name of the game in parenting young children. I'm sure this will pass as my children get older, but for now I am in the thick of it. Solo adventures are my way of owning myself, my body, and my life. It is one of the few times that I get to fulfill my wishes, wants and desires in an uncompromising manner. It builds #balance to my life and strengthens my #mentalhealth. #shesgoingsolo #solo #womenwhohike #presidentialtraverse #thewhitemountains #mountwashington #at2018 #thruhike

I always love looking for blazes when the trail goes through a town. Many people walk past these blazes and have no idea what they mean. They have no idea they are standing on a footpath that spans the entire length of the East Coast. #appalachiantrail #thruhiking #thruhike #hikertrash #trailtales #backpacking #hiking #themountainsarecalling #thetrek #trektheat #at2018 #peoplewhohike #idhikethat #podcast #podernfamily #harpersferry

Only 10AM leaving our comfortable Airbnb and it would continue all day. Good time for a day off with friends. × Day: 226 AT Day: 67 Miles: 0 Injuries: Cold for both of us Weather: lots and lots of snow After surviving the drive to @schweppeshikes and passing jackniged semis/cars, we settled into his house with his amazi gly gracious family and just relaxed. Awesome day. #mmiw #mymountainiswaiting #at2018 #appalachiantrail #sobo #ctc2018 #thruhike #backpacking #takelessdomore #palantepacks #stabilgear #zpacks #altra #liteaf #Virginia

As requested, the Grayson Highland Ponies. In this example they are employing the hiker philosophy of ABS (Always Be Snackin'). × Day:, 225 AT Day: 66 Miles: 27 Injuries: we both have a cold, T-Rex has been dealing for a week or so, it just transferred my way. Weather: Cloudy and low 30s, no precip. Good day on trail, even if a bit bleak. Various amounts of snow but usually about 3-6" except where exposed... there were ponies, mountains, ice, a few hikers and on the other side of Mt. Rogers, our good friend @schweppeshikes to take us off the mountain and relax in a warm place as the storm rolls in. #mmiw #mymountainiswaiting #at2018 #appalachiantrail #sobo #ctc2018 #thruhike #backpacking #takelessdomore #palantepacks #stabilgear #zpacks #altra #liteaf #Virginia #graysonhiglands #ponies

I guess this isn’t the real #topnine Number 1 because I haven’t posted all of these before and number 2 because I have like 50 top nine’s this year. I was forced off trail because of my IT band, it was a bummer, but it wasn’t fun with such an injury. I’m still trying to heal it, but I can hear the trails calling again already. The trail will change you. You’ll turn into a crazy person. You’ll catch terminal adventure disease. :) #appalachiantrail2018 #at2018 #georgia #northcarolina #smnp #tennessee #maryland #maine #katahdin

I have been home for a little over two weeks! It has been a bit rough but I am on the mend. Went for a walk today and it felt amazing to be outside. Taking it slow of course.

While most Christmas music is terrible, if you look hard you might find some of it is, in fact, "Pretty Okay," Lucky for you, I've done some looking. This year's playlist is mixed and online, link in bio. The album cover's background is from my one "snow day" on trail, in the Great Smoky Mountains. Needless to say this year has been very different, and the season has me feeling a big mix of feelings. This, however, is one kind of bullshit I'm glad to be back on. Hope you enjoy. #Christmas #ChristmasMusic #PrettyOK #Playlist #AT2018

matthaineswrites

I'm writing a book about my hike on the Appalachian Trail, and the excerpt I just posted on matthaineswrites.com is about one incident that -- even though I had no idea at the time -- probably pushed me toward the hike. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Looking back, it's a night that could have been a hint this relationship was coming to an end, and it's worth writing about because it shows a gap in the relationship I didn't perceive, or chose to ignore. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I try a different style here that strays from nonfiction a little because -- in addition to presenting our dialogue with one another -- I try to piece together both of our internal monologues. It's impossible for me to know exactly what anyone else was thinking, but I hope it helps me present some of the big ideas in the scene. I'd love to know what you think! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Check it out at matthaineswrites.com

On this trail we have less chances to set up our Duplex (Shelters and Hostels and weather) than on the other trails, but it's always exciting to get cozy in our tiny home when it works out. × Day: 224 AT Day: 65 Miles: 35 Injuries: The Graduate (Achilles) Weather: Upper 30s for a high and mostly cloudy, no precipitation. Hiked through Atkins today after leaving the hostel, did mostly trail and a bit of road walking through Sugar Grove. Big storm coming, but we should make it through the Grayson Highlands before the skies open. #mmiw #mymountainiswaiting #at2018 #appalachiantrail #sobo #ctc2018 #thruhike #backpacking #takelessdomore #palantepacks #stabilgear #zpacks #altra #liteaf #Virginia
