AT 2001 – Day 76 – Harpers Ferry

Day 76, 05-14-01 Zero Day

Harpers Ferry

0 miles, AT  –  1002.2

Today we toured around Harpers Ferry and ate more town food.  Harpers Ferry is such a great place.  The history and timeless feel of it is so nice.  Most all the buildings are old and restored like they were in the late 1800s.  I really enjoyed it.

Most of the night was spent packing food.

Scatman 2011- Exploring town took all of I’d say two hours and the pace was slow.  I did meet my now friend Squiggy while walking through town.  I told him the Scatman Story in the middle of the street while eating my ice cream. Brad who I hiked with for the first three days was also with Squiggy.  I hadn’t seen him since I left him and his day at Gooch Gap.

I also helped my dad get his day pack ready as he was going to hike a day and a half with me.  I carried anything he couldn’t since I wouldn’t have much food with me.  My mother and grandmother were going to bring me more food and pick up my day a short way into our second day.



Get out there!

    Brad was known as Walks alone by now, a name he took outside of Damascus. He was commonly referred to as Walks with Squiggy since we had hiked together for over 500 miles!

    Walks Alone also wrote his journal entries in the shelter registers with his own made up hieroglyphics.
