Last night Santiago let me know that he has under 800 miles left to hike. That was a very big milestone for him, so I’m glad he’s ticked that box. He’s still enjoying warm weather (sometimes way too warm for hiking!) but soon he’s going to have cooler nights and much more temperature-comfortable (as opposed to feet & knee comfortable!) hiking days. Once he hits Vermont — targeting mid-August — he’s going to be back in some altitude in the Green Mountains [“the Greens”] so it will be even cooler. He’s in the final third of his journey. We’re both beyond happy that he’s come this far… hoping and praying for a successful final stage of his hike.
