May your 2022 be full of adventure!
Yes folks, Nimblewill has laced up his Oboz trekkers and is shouldering his Murmur backpack
one more time–for the last, last time!
This year’s odyssey will be known as “Odyssey 2021 ‘Bama to Baxter – Hike On.” This will be the ultimate journey in this old man’s life, one of body, mind and spirit.
This trek begins at Flagg Mountain, the southernmost mountain in the Appalachians
Mountain Range. From Flagg he’ll follow the Pinhoti Trail through northeast Alabama into
Georgia where he’ll connect with the Benton MacKaye Trail–which leads to Springer Mountain
in north Georgia. On Springer Mountain he’ll pick up the Appalachian Trail and hike it on to
Mt. Katahdin in Maine.
Journal entries and photos will be posted often. Gonna be another predictively unpredictable
Nimblewill Odyssey – Bama to Baxter 2021 Hike On.
Sure be great to have y’all come along…
Sunday–November 21, 2021
Location–Southern Terminus, Pinhoti Trail, to Flagg Mountain Tower
Odyssey 2021 Bama to Baxter – Hike On, was successfully concluded on at 1:00 pm when I hiked the final mile, from the southern terminus of the Pinhoti Trail, to the tower atop the summit of Flagg Mountain.
Friends and well-wishers came from near and far to congratulate me and share in my joy at the finish of this long, difficult journey.
Thank you one and all…
Count it all joy, my brothers,
when you meet trials of various kinds,
for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.
And let steadfastness have its full effect,
that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
Thank you photo credits go to the many friends that shared pictures from the day on our Friends of Flagg Facebook group.
