Three Months In

Today it has been three months since I summited Katahdin. I walked past the 1400 mile mark this morning, and am in Glasgow, VA. I don't have any pearls of wisdom, so instead I'll list all of the blaze colors and their meanings that I can remember.

White: following the white blazes of the AT
Blue: taking blue-blazed shortcuts and such
Yellow: hitchhiking instead of hiking
Aqua: canoeing down a section (common on the Shenandoah River for NOBOs)
Pink: changing your hiking speed to stay with a girl
Brown: hiking privy to privy
Green: hiking high
Black: walking on roads instead of the trail
Neon: going from motel to motel
Ghost: following the old AT instead of the current one
