  1. Right now, two weeks after knee replacement, I can make it to the mailbox and back…so I am good only for moral support which you have, and along with it goes an equal amount of envy which I have….have a great walk Mike!

    • It ends! Busted a knee (not the one I was worried about) on the way down the first mountain. Struggled for three more days and had to make it into a section hike. The Trail will still be there for my next section hike.


  2. Just remember that it’s okay to let all of the 20-somethings pass you by. They will do 20 miles a day for three days and then crash for three days. Slow and steady wins the race. Stay safe and have fun!

  3. OMG it’s time already!!! Best of luck. If I could make it through the Maine & NH mountains to NYS on fake knees, you can make it all the way!


  4. Mike, I’m sorry to see yo had an injury. I leave next month for the NE and then westward to Glacier NP. I’m starting with day hikes of 1-2 miles for a month or two. I will tackle the John Muir trails day hikes until its gets too cold. You get better and attack the trails when the limbs are better. 🙂
