Son-Dance, a thru-hiker who also goes by the alias of Paul Travers, summited Mount Katahdin on Wednesday at 11:26 a.m to finish his hike of the Appalachian Trail. The trip took 9 hours in near perfect condtions, sunny and clear with temperatures in the 70’s with moderate winds at 5 to 10 MPH. Details on the climb and the hike through the 100 Mile Wilderness to follow. _____________________________________________________________
Dear Herm’s Hikers,
Yes, Herm’s Hike is now part of AT history and lore. Mount Katahdin was summited on Wednesday. Had a magnificent hiking day with Rainbow Brite and Squeezecheese, my hiking partner throughout parts of Maine. After many, many months, I was finally was able to place the memorial rock and prayer bundles under the Mount Katahdin sign on the top of the mountain. More on the rock and hike later when I return home. All is all, it was a very, very emotional day. Not a dry eye was to be found on top of the mountain. Thank you for your prayers and support. More later, and I mean more later. The hike came full circle, spiritually and emotionally, in the town of Monson and Millinocket when I met fellow hikers from last year’s AT adventure. STAY TUNED for the next trail entry. It shoiuld be the most interesting, fascinating and intriguing of all entries.
As always, hike in peace and hike with your angels!
Totally awesome! Congratulations, mon ami! Glad I am that the fruition of your trek has been so fulfilling. There’ll be a ceremonial dram of Scotia’s best lifted in your honor tonight!
Congrats Paul and Cathy! So happy for you and for Herm.
Congratulations Paul!!! Glad to know you are safe and sound. We all need to get together soon for a celebration.
