More > trail, camped at the U.S./Canadian border... What were you doing 150 days ago? It seems hard to believe that I was sticking my foot through a fence into Mexico, and starting to walk north to Canada. It was all very exciting then, just starting on a great adventure, not really knowing what to expect. I had no doubts about being able to hike the whole way, but I was concerned about the snow and river crossings in the Sierras. It came as a great surprise to me how hard it was to continue hiking when I was tired. There were many times I would have liked to quit, but I knew that if I did quit, I would regret it later, so I was determined to finish. 100's of photos.< Less

Adventure Tales of Wayward: An Appalachian Trail Thru-Hiker By Mark Wilson Kelley

This is the intimate account of my Appalachian Trail thru-hike. In the months preceding my thru-hike, I was deeply depressed, struggling with coming of age, substance abuse, and relationships. The... More > trail presented a unique opportunity for discovery, reflection, and introspection. I dropped out of school and within weeks I stood alone to Mt. Katahdin with 2,175 trail miles before me. Along the way, I trudged through mosquito-infested swamps in Maine, scaled Mt. Washington in zero visibility, and squared off with a 1,000 pound moose on a narrow trail in Mass. I ran out of food, went without water, was nearly killed by lightning, and often wanted to quit. I persevered though to Springer Mtn, Georgia. Many of the stories reveal conflicts involving substance abuse, denial, and immorality. My ego tells me to edit this manuscript to make me more a hero and less a villain, but I’ve decided to leave the good and the bad untouched to show how the AT occasionally broke my spirit but ultimately built my character.< Less
