Day 90: Halfway

Publish date: Jul 26, 2019

Today I crossed mile 1,096, the halfway point of the trail. The second half, I’m told, should go faster now that I have my trail legs. This trail is starting to feel long. Like, really long.

At a camp store just past this point, there’s a big tradition called the “half gallon challenge,” where hikers buy a couple of ice cream tubs and dig in. Those who complete it get a little sample spoon. I didn’t try it.
