Today Matt, or Pretzel, hiked his 2,000th mile on the Appalachian Trail! Now he has only around 180 miles left.
The stretch of trail that he has been hiking for the past few weeks, in and around the White Mountains, is known as the most difficult section of the either trip. However, he is still trekking along and is on his fourth, and hopefully last, pair of shoes.
Recently Matt was interviewed for an upcoming documentary about the Appalachian Trail. I believe that the name of the documentary is simply going to be called "Thru Hikers." Hopefully he will make it to a computer soon so that he can fill in the rest of the details.
