The weight loss results are in from our first 30 days of hiking:

Steve has lost 18 lbs and Noelle has lost 14 lbs.

I think we’re both hungry when we arrive in a town, but we both agree the rumored “hiker hunger” hasn’t hit just yet. Soon.

We said goodbye to our old bounce box today and replaced it with a brand new box. We sent the new bounce box about 300 miles up the trail. We’ll collect it in a few weeks. We keep our meds, vitamins, weight scale, laptop and a few miscellaneous supplies in the box. We’ll restock in a few weeks and then once again send it further up the trail.
