May 13, 1983: The Appalachian Trail was a gently-graded path, meandering along wooded mountainsides, avoiding the summits of Tellico, Black, and Rocky Balds, but touching their ridge crests occasionally. After a long descent into Tellico Gap, it crossed a gravel road amid a dense cedar forest and began to climb Wesser Bald.

October 2, 1983: My first three-and-a-half miles took me through the end of the wilderness. The Appalachian Trail wound through an attractive forest, and it was gentle walking. When I came out onto the paved Greenville-Millinocket Road at 9:25, only fourteen-and-a-half miles of white blazes remained before me.

September 5, 1983: Following another brief stretch of hard climbing, I reached the crest of Franconia Ridge. The rugged climbs continued as I followed the ridge crest over Haystack Mountain, Mount Lincoln, and Mount Lafayette. For the entire distance from Little Haystack to Lafayettes north summit, the trail remained above tree line and the ridge was open and alpine.

June 11, 1983: I hiked thirteen book miles of the AT the previous day over Mount Rogers and the Grayson Highlands. I had intended for that to be an easy day as I savored those last giants and prepared myself for the upcoming big mileage push. However, having hiked so many extra miles off of the Appalachian Trail while roaming the highlands, I was exhausted.

August 15, 1983: The southern portion of the Taconic Mountain Range is basically two parallel chains separated by a high central valley. The Appalachian Trail follows the eastern fork. In Connecticut, this consists of a high, wooded plateau called Mount Riga, with the rocky crag of Lions Head rising from its southernmost tip.

I picked up this fun mini board game in the clearance aisle at The Corner Market (Walmart) and its totally worth the $6 price-tag. My daughter and I played through and loved it. She beat me though!

July 26, 1983: The next two miles or so of trail was one unbroken rock pile. Using mind control techniques which will be described in my next book, The Principles of Psychotic Backpacking, I convinced myself that Blue Mountain was throwing everything it had into one final vain attempt to destroy me, and just kept plugging away,

May 27, 1983: Perched near the summit of Camp Creek Bald beside a very futuristic cluster of communications towers was a steel fire tower with views every bit as excellent as those from Rich Mountain. The sky was as clear of haze as any I have seen in these misty southern mountains.
