T minus 2 weeks and the gear is pretty much finalized. A lot of time and research was put into choosing gear for this trip. It will be interesting to see what stays and what goes for the next one. I tried to find a balance between lightweight and comfort for my first thru hike. All tolled, with food and a liter of water, I’ll be starting with a pack weight of about 42 pounds. Not too shabby. #jmt2018 @platypushydration @wild.wild.ideas @caseknivesusa @hydrapak @underarmour @toaksoutdoor @aleaderfootwear @buffofficial @anker_official @siruiusa @thermarest @adventuremedicalkits @zeisscameralenses

Wishing a happy Father’s Day to my dad and to all the dads out there!

Finally got my hands on a bottle of this...sour ale and fruit salad all in one. #allagashbrewing #pickyourown #maine

Two weeks out and the final pack weight with food for the first leg of the trail is...40.1lbs. #jmt2018

Dropped resupply packages at the post office today...shit is getting real. Three weeks until twenty days in paradise begins! #jmt2018

Nearly two years since the thought crossed my mind and six months since the permit was secured. How is 17 nights in a place that looks like this only 30 days away?!? #jmt2018

The final major piece of gear for #jmt2018 🙌🏻 This should keep all the critters out of my food. #wildideas #bearikade

Seven to go...

If you haven’t tried a Maine Blueberry Donut from @holydonutmaine then you haven’t lived. #posthike #donutconnoisseur

When the winds are so strong that you can barely keep your eyes open, but you just have to take in that view.

Looking back at Avery Peak from the summit of West Peak. Looks amazing until you remember that you have to climb back over it to get back to the car. 😂🤦🏻‍♂️💪🏻
