My typical day on the trail starts with packing up, treating water, and drinking a protein shake from a zip lock bag with a straw. Then I start hiking. The first hour I walk slowly and listen to the noises of the forest. Then I pick up the pace a bit and start singing songs I know from childhood.

I always start with Morning Has Broken (6th grade chorus) and then songs from the Sound of Music, etc. I stop for lunch around noon. I typically cook lunch so this usually takes 30 minutes. After lunch, I listen to the awesome music on my ipod (thanks to those that contributed songs:)) and, yes, I sing.

I typically get to camp around 5:00. However, today was a little different. I hiked 1.5 miles into Hamburg, PA to the Microtel Inn to pick up my second resupply. Staying here tonight. Back on the trail tomorrow. 🙂
