The Hundred Mile Wood and the Finish!

Dad (aka, Trolley Stop) is currently in the 100 mile wood.  He got in contact with Mom (aka, Jane) before entering and they predict they will be finishing the trail on Sunday, October 2nd.  The current weather forecast is for clear skies with a high around 55.  Perfect weather for finishing.  let's hope this forecast holds true and he is done by Sunday, with a warm bed and clean clothes to wear on Monday!


  1. As Trolley Stop prepares to finish his AT thru-hike, I would like to promote awareness of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, which maintains, protects and educates about the Trail. 2,000 volunteers care for the Trail to make it safe for hikers and nature lovers, like our Uncle Rog.

    Please consider a donation in Roger Gorey/Trolley Stop's honor to celebrate his completion of his lifelong dream:

    Thanks friends! And thanks Trolley Stop for inspiring us to think, dream, learn and give!

  2. Gosh Rog. Coincidentally Tom and I will be in Maine - Acadia - on October 6. Can you slow it down a bit? (I know you must be anxious to finish.) We would love to be there to greet you when you come off the trail. Let me offer my congratulations to you just a few days ahead of time. What a feat! We are so happy for you.
