Day 1-April 6: Today before we started hiking we chatted with Mountain Squid, the man who checked me in to start hiking the AT 6 years ago today. It was great to catch up with him. We hiked 12 miles; along the way we did some filming with our new cameras: the Sony Action Cam is awesome. Thanks so much AHNU for getting them for us. Found a great campsite, made a fire, warmed our tired bones for a bit, and are now hunkered down in our tents, preparing for an impending storm. All in all, a good first day on the BMT. Much like last year, we are the only ones hiking it thus far. It is so nice having Jesse Pegg along. Thank you, Rachel for letting him come out with me.
