Appalachian Trail Loner #43 SPY ROCK 2012 Thru Hike

A helmeted A.T. volunteer clearing the trail with a weed-eater. (0:10) SPY ROCK is one of the highlights of this section! This boulder was truly gigantic, and just sitting there like it was placed there by a God. *Click ‘SHOW MORE’ below for more notes about this video…Free climbing to the top was not hard, and the view was amazing and well worth the effort.(0:52) This random pool of tadpoles was up on top of the massive boulder.It was cool to meet ”Apache’ and his trail family on top of Spy Rock. I took a pic for them with his camera… () (Apache is in the middle, they were having fun doing poses from ‘The Matrix’.)He also posted an AT video blog on YouTube in 2012. I was not 100% sure it was him at first, and I was still a little shy, (I’ve loosened up a lot sense then) but felt kind of like meeting a celebrity. He had started a few weeks before me and was surprised I had caught up to him, even though he had taken some time off to heal a bum ankle. His Mother had also posted a lot of nice comments on my videos, and kept me informed where ‘The Tribe’ was on the trail.I have a lot of respect for Apache. He’s a smart, excited, young man that even makes a lot of his own gear! He completed the AT in 2012, as well as the PCT in 2014. (His videos are absolutely amazing!) Check out his channel… ().(0:56) ‘The Priest’ rock in front of the shelter. There is a cool tradition where each hiker climbs Priest Mountain, then signs the logbook with a confession from the trail. My confession: “That I loved the peanut butter pie at the Dutch House.” But there were a lot of really funny or sarcastic ones. And others I can’t post here!(0:59) Photo of me gazing over the Virginia landscape. My buddy B1 took this photo and really like it a lot. I don’t have a lot of pics of me without my arm in the frame. Looking trimmer too.We came across a well-known swimming hole and about 10 hikers went for a swim. I wadded around barefoot but can’t swim. It was still refreshing as it had been hot in the daytime but cool some nights.(1:04) My campsite right on the Tye River. The silver sheet of plastic was given to me by ‘Half Speed’. It was lite and had many uses: place to sit on wet days, ‘welcome’ mat at the foot of my hammock for getting up with bare feet, and was indispensable in heavy rain, by extending my tarps coverage.(1:20) My hammock system all set-up. The bulge in the tarp is one of my hiking poles, buying me a little extra room inside. I used small, metal tent poles for the tie-outs until I lost a couple, and then ditched those altogether. Then just used sticks found wherever I made camp. Sometimes I would find a favorite ‘stick’ and carry it for days.(1:26) The flowing river water was great to soak my dogs, cool but invigorating! The sound of the river was also soothing and helped me sleep.(3:28) An arrowhead! As you may have read, I am an avid artifact collector and was having withdrawals not being able to check my favorite spots back home. Finally I found this nice quartz example directly on the trail, mixed in with the gravel. It stuck out like a sore thump to my trained eyes, even though hundreds, if not thousands, of hikers had walked right over it, and never even noticed.I rescued this point and will keep it always. It’s one of the few ‘Leave no trace’ principles I fudge on. Otherwise, this sacred artifact would just get stomped into little flakes, and never seen by anyone. At least this way, everyone who watches this video will get to inspect its handcrafted quality. Also imagine its maker, walking along this same path. He (or she) depended on this stone, and hunting skills, to feed their family. The feeling you get finding something like this is hard to describe. I took it out a half dozen times that night, to look at it again with my headlamp.(3:35) ‘The Tribe’ stopped at this shelter for a snack. After, I saw them organizing: First Apache, their leader, stood behind an invisible line, directly at the spot where they had left the trail. Then his 2 friends each lined up behind him, they were now ready to continue without missing a single inch of the official trail.(3:40) A VERY old cemetery marker. This was a really interesting area with more old settlements.(3:43) Apparently, someone thought this airport luggage buggy would be a good idea, then learned otherwise and just left it out in the middle of nature. LAZY.(3:48) RATTLE SNAKE! Thankfully someone recently left this danger note. The large reptile was only inches off the trail, resting on a log.This was the only night I slept with my food bag. It had rained all day, and I just wanted to get into dry clothes, eat, and go to bed. B1 told me the next morning, that he scared off a medium sized bear, that he saw sniffing around my tarp. Of course, I always hung my food after that!.
