  1. Hey
    Ryan nice to hear you are enjoying your time out on the LT. I was just
    up there this past weekend doing a one night trip. I ran into a Red Boar
    (i believe, from views from the top) at MontClair Glen, I wrote you a
    little hello how ya doing message in the trail journal at the shelter,
    He thought I was you for a second, said he had been conversing a bit
    with you. Any how I had an awesome trip from Appalachian gap, the goal
    was camels hump but I ended up cutting out from Montclair Glen and
    heading to where my car was parked near by. With a four hour drive ahead
    of me Camels hump was not to be this time around. Enjoy the rest of
    your hike I look forward to your next blog, I wish I was out there on
    the LT so Im living vicariously through you as I sit in my cubicle
    everyday. Happy trails!

  2. Heh. I was actually on Camel’s Hump on the 24th, so you missed me by a bit. Red Boar did mention a “Herro!” on VFTT 😀

    We’ll have to plan some good weekend hikes in the near future. I hope your gig is going well… let’s get out in the woods soon!

  3. You’re having much better weather than I had. I had no views at all from Belvidere or Spruce Ledge Shelter, and practically none from Jay or Mansfield.

  4. I remember reading your trail journal from my office and wishing I was out there while you were 🙂 It was one of those two summers with the record-breaking rainfall– hell of a time to be out there. I don’t know how you feel about doing the trail a second time, but I think it’s worth multiple visits!

  5. Ryan, how did you get to North Jay, and once there did you have to hike to Journey’s End?

    • Oops, sorry I didn’t respond earlier. There seems to be an issue with the Disqus comments coming in from mobile devices…

      I stayed at the North Troy Inn, after driving there from Maine. They let me keep my car in their driveway, and they drove me to the trailhead in the morning. Great place!

  6. Thanks for reading, Phil! I actually started reading your blog while working at the Green Mountain Club, so you always do remind me of the LT, regardless of how long it’s been since you’ve been there… you going to hit it again sometime? 😉
