  1. Hey Peter, your website looks GREAT! Best of luck on your upcoming adventure. I look forward to keeping up with your progress and peakbagging adventures. Hope to see you when you reach Virginia!

  2. Love your enthusiasm and detailed approach to each step of your outdoors adventures. You’ll have buckets of detailed information and enlightening stories to share from your journey. Keep good journal notes,and know that friendships along the way pave the trail with good feelings.

    Everything you need is within you. Travel lite, stay observant, and harness goodness every step along the AT…, and during those detours to accomplish the NH 4K’s.

  3. I forgot about the detours. It’s silly really. You’ll climb right over the top of a dozen mountains all named Brushy Mtn in VA and you’ll go over thousands more with no views, but the minute you hit the White Mtns in NH they route you around the peak. WHY!? It’s crazy. I wasn’t a purist so I Blue Blazed to the top of every mountain in the Presidential Range. Seeing as you’re a peakbagger, I’m sure you might opt for the same. It doesn’t seem right to cross all those mountain tops in the South only to miss the 360 degree views in the Whites.

  4. Hey Peter……

    Wishing you the best on your NOBO venture on the AT. I’ll be following all the way!

  5. Jennifer and I are following your adventure. We hope to see you on the trail.

  6. Hello Peter…..

    I live in Asheville, NC and there are a bunch of us in my office who are following your Journey. I am trying to squeeze some money out of them for the Firetower. Keep up the Good Work.

  7. WELCOME TO TENNESSEE!!! You are making stellar time…

  8. Peter! I hope you get a good soak in a tub in Hot Springs! It was great visiting with you on Mt. LeConte. I posted a story about you on my blog . I also donated a penny for every mile you hike. I was able to purchase a copy of your book as well! I can’t wait to get it!

  9. Great stuff Peter. Been checking this site and keeping track of your daily progress on Twitter. Sounds like you are having a blast! We’ve been trying to keep the trails worn down and climb the peaks up here too and are looking forward to getting in a hike or two with you when you hit Virginia. Of course, we won’t be able to keep up with you unless we weight your pack down!

  10. Congratulations on the CMLC Internship! Glad you made it thru PA. Way to go Allison, saving the day! May the force and the liquids be with you!


  11. Hi Peter,
    Congratulations on completing the AT.
    I sent Allison a donation check over 3 weeks ago, asked for a book and said I would like to talk with you. I know things have been hectic lately; I wanted to make sure you got my letter, I need the book for a hiking trip coming up soon.

  12. Congratulations on your hike and fund raising. Both impressive. I’m the SOBO you met at the halfway marker back in June. (I took your pic next to the stone that Earl Shaffer had self-photographed in 1948!) I knew after talking to you for 5 minutes that you were going to make your deadline. You impressed me as a very determined young man and you are one of only a few who seem to have a love of the trail. Wish there were more of you out there. I hiked til Harpers Ferry and quit a few days early because of the heat. Then went to Maine and hiked from Gorham, NH to Monson, ME. Will finish the last 114 miles next year! (And then Harpers Ferry to Springer sometime.) Best wishes to you on the career you are starting. –Bud

  13. I live on the TN side of the Smokies. I’m interested in helping with the Shuckstack project. Please let me know how I can reach you by phone.
