Here is the link to our tracking device we will use this year. Once on the trail (start 1 May) we will update our position twice daily at a minimum. Lunch time and at the end of the day. We will also update at state lines and such.
Just copy the above and paste it to the address bar, then off you go. I find the "Hybrid" view best, shows the satellite photo with the names of things pasted on top. We have all the 14 food resupply boxes packed, transportation to and from the trail set up. Now time to do the final check of all the rest of our gear and visit with friends and family for the last few days at home.
Thanks to all the subscribers for following along our journey. We so enjoy getting all the comments you send while we are on the trail. We hope you all have a great summer and enjoy the walk with us.
My name is Matthew Mooney. I am the proud son of two Appalachian Trail walkers. Pat and Debbie Mooney embarked on this great journey in April 2007. An ankle injury pulled them off early, but they are still plugging away when they have time. It is my duty to keep them in touch with family, friends, and all curious sorts while adding to this journal the many resulting tales. Take your time sorting through the journals of this adventuring couple willing to forge a trail many only dream of. Please submit your thoughts and encouragement; they will be passed on.
