Hike with David -Advanced Hike

  • June 21, 2013 · 9:00 AM

This is a special event. We have someone in our group -(and to be fair he is part of most area groups ) who is hiking the entire Appalachian Trail. David ( see the photo) started in Georgia in Mid March and he is approaching the NY area this week.

For this hike, you must be someone that is an active with an area group and comfortable with a 10+ mile hike.

Since David is still on the trail, I do not have an exact start and end point. I will have more details as the days unfold.

All of this is subject to change.

    Another beautiful weather day. Had a taste of the full thru hiker experience today. Found a new hangout spot at the RPH shelter and topped day off at my favorite supermarket/bar, Two thumbs up! Only 700 more miles to go

    We will meet the at 9:30 off of the Taconic Parkway. The exit for Cold Spring which is route 301. There is a public works turnout there and that is where I will be. I will review options and my recommendation from there. My number is (917)[masked]

    I am leading a short hike tonight from 7-9 so I will provide an update with the specific location later tonight. I will also post my number

    Just a brief update - I expect us to meet either off of the Taconic or 684 some time between 9 and 9:30. Still waiting to see where David ends up today which will impact our start point. My guess is that we will be off-trail around 3:30 ish and then go out for meal after. No matter what, i need to be heading back by 5PM.

    Hi Patrizia - Sure - You can ask - If there is no change, I may drop the Sat hike option unless this can be organized.

    Saw David Starchild last night, in a little get together at Adam's house. He is in great physical shape and not at food deprived as I feared he would be. I think he said he was going through the Zoo and Anthony's Nose today, with Adam, then spend some time with friends in Long Island and probably be in Fahnestock on Friday. I cannot hike on Friday, but I could do Saturday if the hike gets defined. Steve, do you want to ask Jeffrey/Pam if they can lead us, since I saw you cannot be there?

    As of now the Friday hike is likely to be within the area of Fahnestock and Route 22 - Should have a better idea tonight as David is approaching Harriman today - (6/19)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
