Just 75% to go!!
Bruce and Steve caught up just once this week, but it was just in time to catch him celebrating a big milestone in his hike. He is now hiking well, the weather is warming, and his weight is plummeting.
He has gone through the gorgeous Grayson Highlands (above)–ponies and all–and is embracing all aspects of his hike. Steve and Bruce discuss the beauty of the area, as Steve reminisces about the area and gives Bruce something of a preview of the next few days.
Despite the fact that he has passed the 500-mile mark, Bruce still hasn't felt the hiker hunger that normally accompanies such exertion. He's losing weight at quite a pace, yet feels great.
If you want to find out more about his journey–and how you can contribute to his fund-raiser for the Appalachian Trail Conservancy–visit his site at RTKChallenge.com. While you're there, why not hop on over to our sponsor, Trailtopia's site to plan the food for your next hike.
