Hello and Happy Saturday, Dear TFT Community! 🙂
Per screen below (see map overview), we are happy to announce that Logan has completed week # 1 on the trail– having trekked ~100 miles from Fort Miles, DE eastward to Bowie, MD.
WAY TO GO, LOGAN!!!
I spoke with Logan earlier today and his feet were hurting a bit. That, plus the energy and focus it took to hike along a heavily congested urban vehicle route; one that is not conducive to pedestrians and is quite dangerous.
…Logan did some pole planting, in order to pivot himself up the hillside; in places where there was virtually no shoulder and trucks were barreling along.
OH, BTW– If you’d like to follow Logan’s daily trail journal, then bookmark Unitic’s 2015 American Discovery Trail Journal by clicking here: www.trailjournals.com/TrekForTruth
I will post a weekly update here on the TFT Trail Journal at the end of each week on Saturday, whereas Logan will be posting daily updates to the link pasted above.
Here’s a quick rundown of week #1:
We (Logan, Kathryn, Oliver and I) embarked from ‘The Ville” on Friday, April 17, the day of Logan’s 55th birthday.
After establishing bivouac at Tall Pines Campground on Friday ~9pm, Logan and Kathryn set off on the first 10 miles of the ADT ~ 11am the following morning; see map of Fort Miles and ADT post markers:
On Sunday, we saw off Logan ~ 9:30am, as he headed west to Redden Forest where he’d spend night #1 in a driving rain.
On Monday afternoon, Logan had the great fortune of meeting another Trail Angel by the name of Garry. Garry and his wife invited Logan to stay in their playhouse hostel, for which Logan and we are very grateful– THANK YOU,Garry, for your compassion and kindness!
On Wednesday, April 22, Logan arrived in Tuckahoe State Park ~ noon EST and set up camp for the night.
On Thursday, Logan trekked 20 miles against a fairly strong headwind and wicked traffic conditions– the first 20 mile segment of the trip–super job, Logan!!!
As of tonight, April 25, Logan is lodging in Bowie, MD, after some 100 miles into the Trek For Truth, some wicked rain storms, heavy traffic and the good fortune of two trail angels along the way- thanks again Amy and Garry!
Meanwhile, back at HQ, Cuz, Mr. Butters and I hold down the fort and plan logistics for the upcoming mail drop to Harper’s Ferry…stay tuned for more exciting TFT adventure updates soon, same bat time, same bat channel…–see you next week, and thank you for your support!! 🙂
Thanks for sharing such a nice summary Drew! Only 40 miles to DC and the May Day event on May 1st to focus attention on the Lyme Disease pandemic.
I have much respect for you Logan! You are a true Warrior and inspiration to many. Sending you healing energy and Hugs.
You can do it Logan!!! Cheering you on from Louisville.
Great job on that less than hiker friendly part of your trek! I have my first care package of healthy helpful’s ready to send to you 🙂
