Journal 152-ODYSSEY 2021: Bama to Baxter-Hike On!

Sponsors     Journals     Itinerary     Gear List

Wednesday–July 21, 2021
Trail Day–152
Trail Mile–-14.5/1,743.3
Location–Culvers Gap, then to Mosey’s Hostel, Port Jervis, NY, AT Mile 1,324.6

It’s a long drive from New City back to Millbrook-Blairstown Road, so we’re all up a little after five. Coffee and bagels and out the door we go. Shortly after seven, another of those sad times–goodbye Larry, goodbye Freida. Your kindness, generosity, and friendship, blessings to me!

I’d prepared myself for a long, tiring day, but little did I know… Another grueling ten-hour one, to hammer out a scant 14+ miles. Up rocks, down rocks, hardly a normal forward step the entire time.

Beautiful weather for hiking, but my attitude, my not-happy state of mind (and failure to overcome)–this one goes down as anything but joyful.

 

If you are distressed by anything external,
the pain is not due to the thing itself,
but to your estimate of it;
and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.
(Marcus Aurelius)
