6/14.
17 miles. Staying at Toms Runs Shelter.  It was sad leaving Jon 
to go home and me continue walking north. At 1st I wanted to go home 
with him for a break but after my 4 days off I'm ready to start 
pushing north again. Really flat today didn't see too many people.  But I 
did see a lot of tasty blueberry's!!!! I'm camping with a boyscout troop 
real close. Should be a fun night

6/15
 hiked 22 miles to Boiling Spring, PA.  Stayed at the Allen berry. 
Can't recall too much from that day.  I woke up early and did all the 
miles by 4pm. Then I watched the Celtics lose.

6/16
the Allen berry was so nice I stayed twice!  $25 a night and a 
breakfast and dinner buffet.  Met up with AD there and hung out with 
him all day.

6/17
hiked 27 miles to make it to Dun cannon PA and the infamous Doyle 
hotel. Hiked though a lot of farms and field today.  I made it to the 
Doyle by 7pm.  Checked in an ordered dinner ans beer.  Nobody was 
there waiting for me!  He slack packed south to watch LA beat Boston.   
I also met up with Thin mint, Creepy, Green dog and also Barnabas.  I 
have seen him in over 700 miles!

6/18
 10 miles. Staying at Peters Mountain Shelter.  Hiking when your 
tired and hungover really sucks!  These 10 were the hardest I've had 
to do in a while. We had a big climb to start then we were on a 
exposed ridge and got beaten by the sun.   But anyways early to bed. 
Nobody is 18 miles ahead and I will catch him

6/19. 
17 miles.  Staying at Rausch Gap Shelter. Slept really good 
last night in my tent.  Hiked quick in the am and chilled in the 
afternoon.  Still really hot.  My knee was sore today. Hiked though 
some old mining camps.  Been hiking on old railroad beds and old roads 
real nice hiking.  I did hear a lot of automatic gun fire and low 
flying choppers.  Some locals said there's a army base around here.   
I'm glad the army is keeping the woods safe from terrorists!  Sleeping 
in the shelter tonight.  There's a lot of people here.  Fathers and 
sons.  One of the guys is playing a good guitar and harmonica.

6/20
 17.5 miles staying at the 501 shelter.  This shelter has a shower 
and doors.  It's really nice there's a lot of thru hikers here. We 
ordered pizza for supper. The shelter is by the road. But to go back 
to this am.  I slept crappy.  We had some trail magic this am.  Jay- Z 
was cooking burgers at 0830.  I had 3 cheese burgers 2 soda's and some 
chips.  Then I had a big climb on a real hot and humid day. It 
sucked!  After the climb the rest of the day was hot and humid and 
water was scarce.  I hiked with Skippy this am.  He work in drug 
research and is from NC.  Later I hiked with Itrod a M.D. from PA. 
When I got to the shelter creepy and Nobody were here!  So I'll hike 
out with them in the morning to Port Clinton. 25 miles up the trail

6/21
 25 miles staying at the port Clinton pavilion in town.  Woke up 
early started at 0630.  Did 15 miles before lunch.  Real rocky but 
pretty flat though. 90 degrees today again!  Ended up in port 
Clinton.  I met up with nobody, creepy, thin mint, and Skippy. They 
were chillin on Fred and his wife's front porch. They are trail 
angels!  They made some hikers supper, gave some beers, and drove some 
of us to Wendy's.  What nice people!!  I'm staying in town under the 
town pavilion with Skippy and freight train (he snores really loud!).   
Good night

6/22
zero day. My knee was getting sore and I just hiked 97 miles in 4 
days so it was time for a break. Stayed at the port Clinton hotel.   
The was a sign on the door to take your own trash out an to bring your 
towels downstairs.  There was a $10 deposit on the key and the towel.
