I rec'd a brief e-mail from the Appalchian Trail from Jeff at about the 250 mile mark,
"Heard it was 9 degrees at Newfound Gap one of the nights I was in Gatlinburg. I went to Cherokee for a half hour and skated a kids board at the skatepark there. Still had a inch of snow that night on the trail but my tarp did fine. A Native American hiker from North Dakota said 'we needed some adventure in our adventure.' Have some cool pics. 3 hail storms the next day and saw a crashed airplane.
Max Patch was awesome too. The trail is getting better and the weather for 3 days was perfect. A lot of hikers have left the trail for weather or injury. I'm feeling fine but get a little sore sometimes. Really enjoy this."
He'll be able to post videos hopefully around the 400 mile mark.
