While SpiceRack was having an awesome time looping through the mountains of Rocky Mountain National Park, I sat my butt in front of a computer at the Grand Lake library and typed out a mid-point update article for Cicerone Extra. It was a productive time and I look back on it fondly. Anyway, the product of my effort is now published online. Consider giving it a read if you want to know my thoughts on the CDT in general after hiking 1,500 miles. The day-to-day nature of this blog doesn’t lend itself to introspection or broad thoughts. For this reason, it was a welcome challenge to take a step back and try to sum up my feelings succinctly.
Check it out. I’d love to hear what you think!
You can find the article here:

Hi Buddy. I have to say, I’m really impressed with your writing skills. You’ve come a long way since you first started writing on the PCT. I know it’s a mental challenge to keep writing day after day, but there are a lot of us who appreciate you taking the time to do it. Keep it up my friend, and we’ll see you at the end.

Thanks, dude. It’s always good to hear some of that sweet validation that we millennials crave so hungrily. It really has been an interesting learning experience keeping up a writing habit, and, despite all my moaning about writing, it is something I enjoy. I do it for myself, but it’s y’all that keep me honest and accountable. That little bit of pressure helps me grow. I’m happy with the results so far!
Looking forward to catching up and comparing beards, my friend.
