Today (technically yesterday) I spoke briefly with Matt both before and after his daily hike. His Grandmother, Weezie, happened to be in the area and sent him off on his voyage. He make it to his goal shelter site, Hawk Mountain. Although the site is only about 8.1 miles down the trail, he really ended up hiking closer to 10 miles today because of the trail to the starting destination.
When I was talking to him earlier this evening he said that the forecast called for rain, but as of right now it appears to be calm.
Hopefully I will have more information to share with you all tomorrow. Only a few more days until Matt can make his return to the inter-webs!
If you have any questions for him or for me people leave the in the comment section, and we will do our best to get those answered as soon as possible.
Thanks for reading!
