An interesting "Blazing" strategy we discovered was "Ice Cream Blazing" making sure to stop at the best ice cream joints on the AT.....and sadly we started this too last because there were soooo many Ice Cream stops in prior states.....but better late than never!

Shuttling to pick up our resupply packages.

Well....we saw our first ferocious bear in New York.....but......it didn't look "exactly" like this one! see below:
