We came up with this idea a few weeks ago, but it took us awhile to come up with categories for each letter and responses. Hope this gives you a more exciting view of trail life. There are a few other non-journal entry blogs in the works 🙂
(Fuego’s ABC blog will be here soon!)
Animal on trail– chipmunks
Breakfast food- oatmeal with pudding powder, dry milk and dehydrated fruit
Cliff Bar flavor- carrot cake (oatmeal raisin walnut is a close second)
Dog– Madness (Little Bear)- the cute little Pomeranian we met in GA
Funniest moment– Fuego trying to catch a moth in the tent. It was a 3 minute process and he looked like a cat on a mission (You probably had to be there to think its funny) Also, Boombox belting out ‘Drops of Jupiter’ at Mountaintop Tavern
Gear- trekking poles (saved me from many faceplants)
Ice cream flavor- Ben & Jerry’s Half Baked
Jam- listening to a lot of Queen and 90s rock lately
Kindest moment on trail- when a hiker fell and broke her hip, almost a dozen other hikers made a gurney and carried her over a mile off the trail
Least favorite thing- pointy rocks (or false summits)
Motto- hike your own hike
Name (of a trail or someone’s trail name)- Chunky Gal Trail in NC
Observation- I realized that most tree trunks are more gray than brown, but as kids, we always colored them brown!
Pasta Sides flavor- cheddar broccoli
Question to ask other hikers- “why did you decide to hike the AT?”
Ramen flavor- creamy chicken
View- can I choose all of the 360 degree views from the balds? Just breathtaking!
Waterfall- Laurel Falls (Day 45)
Yuckiest moment- when all of the ants were coming out of my backpack!
