THE CATAMOUNT TRAIL - A SOLO JOURNEY WITH FRIENDS
The length of Vermont on skis. 311 miles in 31 sections beginning on the Massachussets border and winding through the Vermont wilderness to the Canadian border.
I have wanted to make this journey for some years and last Autumn while contemplating my annual birthday goals, I decided it was the winter to begin.
I got the first 4 sections done last winter (2015) only to ski off snow and onto my teeth in Vermont's worst snow season in 100 years.
It is the last day of December, 2016 and I pick up on section 5 and 6 to end one and begin the new year.
I went out today to get my ski legs under me, remember where my stuff is and pack it and just wrap my head and body around the next 2 days of skiing all day long. I love it so far, it is a little scary and that is good.
