First and foremost; yes I am fine. I am totally safe, haven’t seen a bear, and currently my only injuries are mosquito bites. The past 9 days I have spent hiking through Maine’s 100 mile wilderness – the most isolated part of the Appalachian Trail. The 100 mile wilderness begins south of Katahdin and ends at US route 15. From here, hikers can catch a ride into Monson, a famous trail town (and where I am currently resting tired ankles and eating as much fresh food as I can find before I head out on trail again tomorrow).
