Write Up:
Seven out of the nine participants on this event completed the thirty mile hike! The two that didn't finish (Jeff and Doug) were not injured or anything--they just realized a little more than halfway through that they weren't going fast enough to finish before dark.

We started at appx. 8 a.m. in Pen Mar Park, right near the Maryland/PA line, and the end point was Gathland State Park, which is 10 miles from the MD/WV line. Emilio summed up this hike, "Long hike...we'll see how we do with 10 more miles."

Ten more miles? Isn't thirty miles enough?

Not on May 7th! In case you haven't heard, May 7th is the date for the Hike Across Maryland--A one day hike that covers all 40 miles of the Appalachian Trail in Maryland. It is an extremely challenging task--so be sure to wish the participants good luck, or if it is past May 7th, congratulations!
