Congratulations to Jere Bidwell!

This morning, I woke up early and dropped an out of town hiker off at the Appalachian Trail on Flat Top Mountain.  This is the same hiker I dropped off a few weeks ago (refer to Summoning the Strength to Wuss Out)– a man by the name of Jere Bidwell.  Jere serves as a hike leader for the Charlottesville Chapter of the Potomac Appalachian Trail Club and for years now, he has been doing day hikes all around the state.  He’s been working towards hiking all of the Appalachian Trail miles in Virginia.  And today was the final hike he needed to complete that goal!

Finishing Virginia isn’t a trivial feat.  Virginia hosts 550 miles of the Appalachian Trail, the most mileage of any state and over a quarter of the entire trail.  Combine that with all the driving, logistics and shuttling that would accompany the individual day hikes, Jere has shown a great amount of dedication, drive and patience to complete his goal.

With that, I humbly submit my congratulations to Jere!
