Mile 100

We passed mile 100 today and it felt so good. I'm sitting in my tent right now planning out my day tomorrow and it looks like a 20 mile day. Ever since my feet healed up and I got the new shoes hiking seems much easier. The crew I've been with (Mac, sideshow, reed, Cody, and black swan) have been doing good miles since we started after kickoff. It's lookin like I might actually make it after all. 

We stopped today at eagle rock. It is basically what it sounds like, this massive rock shaped like an eagle. 

Last but certainly not least...I got my first resupply package and have a rediculous amount of food. They have hiker boxes where people dump anything they don't want. Turns out I could eat for month just by grabbing stuff out of there. I'm planning on making a few changes to my future boxes. I did pick up a 2 liter platypus bladder that will help a ton wih filtering water. The 16 ounce bladder the sawyer mini came with takes forever to fill my bottles. 

Here's a beard shot. It's getting out of control. I've been taking pictures everyday to make a slides how at the end showing how my look has changed.

Also, I apologize for typos, sloppy writing and text talk. Doing posts on a phone is tricky. 


  1. That rock is very cool! Great job on hitting 100 miles!

  2. Wow Aaron super proud of you! I look forward to your every blog. You are the talk of the town around here. We are so glad your feet are better, tough start! Thinking about you every day : )

  3. Congrats on Mile 100! I'm enjoying keeping up with your blog!

  4. I think you look adorable, who are you again......Take care and keep the pace.
    Love you, Aunt Maryleigh

  5. We had the same issue, to much food in the beginning. After 300 miles the hiker hunger kicked in. One town day I ate a whole large pizza and 3 double burgers. You are bringing back memories, have fun out there, enjoy all of it, even the difficult parts. They will come to define you.

  6. Congratulations on 100! Eagle Rock looks amazing!
