Greetings one and all:
I am Fat Man Walking (no, not that one. I am actually the original having obtained my trail name from my son in 2000. Lont before that imposter took the name in his hike to lose weight several years later). But, I digress.
I am in the midst of a 20 year plan to section hike the AT. Started 11 years ago and have now made the PA/NJ state line at DWG. Next year, I will tackle the NJ/NY section and I?have a couple of questions about that section for the group.?
1) I have?that section referred to?as the "Deli Run" as there seems to be, particularly in NY, a deli or small grocery with a deli at virtually every road crossing. I was?wondering in your experences, what were the good?ones, bad ones, and were you able to substantially lessen your food bags during this part of your hikes??Or, otherwise save weight?
2) I?have heard of a section in this section in?NY referred to as the "Agony Grind." Where is this exactly or is it the whole?NY section? I?thought that NY calmed down after Bear Mt/Hudson River.
Your input will be greatly appreciated. I will hang up now and listen.
Thanks and have a great hike!!!!
