Day 128- Wednesday, 7/18- Delaware Water Gap- (0) (1294.7 total)

I was able to get out and do my errands today. A local guy uses his car to shuttle hikers to the grocery store, etc here and only charges $10 which is a nice price. I have seen a lot of shuttle services ar...

Day 114- Tuesday, 7/3- Duncannon, PA- (0) (1147.9 total)

Didn’t do much except lie around all day and try to rest up to get rid of this cold. The motel shuttled me over to a local restaurant for breakfast, and I was able to get lunch delivered so I didn’t have to go out...

Day 103- Friday, June 22- Washington DC- (0) (1043.2 total)

The train to DC wasn’t scheduled until 11:30am this morning, so plenty of time to lay in and take a slow morning. The lady who did my slack pack yesterday said I could hang on to the small day pack she lent me...

Day 97- Saturday, 6/16- Manassas Gap Shelter, VA- (10.7 miles) (981.5 total)

I know now that I have fully become “hiker trash” as we are called. Last night I woke up twice to pee. But although we were in a house with a fully functioning toilet upstairs that I could have...

Day 88- Thursday, 6/7- Calf Mountain Shelter, VA- (7.7 miles) (870.7 total)

Despite the allure of a zero day, Workhorse and I did manage to break the magnetic pull of the hostel and its comforts and got back on the trail. We went out and had a nice breakfast at a cafe d...

Day 84- Sunday, 6/3- Seeley-Woodworth Shelter- (14.0 miles) (821.8 total)

Got a shuttle out of town this morning back to the trailhead. Had some extra food and resupply items that I didn’t need and that I usually put in the hiker box at motels. Strangely, this motel did...

Day 77- Sunday, 5/27- Middle Creek Campground, VA- (0) (750.8 total)

My first zero day in about 15 days or so. Felt really nice to have a full day to just rest and relax. The day started off pretty slowly- just had breakfast at the restaurant here and then lay on the co...

Day 71- Monday, 5/21- Niday Shelter, VA- (9.9 miles) (686.7 total)

Spent the morning in the motel doing all my online stuff for the charity. A few of the girls from FTD in Thailand have been sending me videos recently that I can post on Facebook. These videos have been...

Day 65- Tuesday, 5/15- Jenny Knob Shelter- (11.9 miles) (603.1 total)

Well the double Nero wasn’t too bad. Managed to get everything done, but it did feel a bit rushed. Not too much time to relax- pretty busy getting all the errands done. But the good part of it is that...

ABOUT ME

My name is Micah Pexa. I was born and raised in the beautiful state of Hawaii and I work as an ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher. I got my teaching degrees at the University of Hawaii at Manoa and have taught overseas in Thailand, Japan, and Saudi Arabia. My hobbies include hiking, camping, bodyboarding, and watching Denver Broncos football! I'm currently teaching English overseas here in Taif, Saudi Arabia. I initially came over here to pay off student loans, but now that those are gone, I'm saving for this hike and whatever comes afterwards.
