Annapolis Rock, Appalachian Trail, Maryland
2009 11 29: katinka the diesel golf gets a new battery today and wants to go for a drive. So we drive out route 40 past Frederick to where the AT crosses over 70 West and under 40 west. While katinka takes a nap, dreaming electrons, I walk, in very thin shoes, up to Annapolis Rock and back. It is a pleasantly warm day for late November. I am never in any real danger of starvation due to eating a sandwich, and a plentiful supply of plump, corn-fed hikers on the trail. I did get one or two hunger pangs walking back from the rock. But managed to almost completely avoid any need to engage in acts of survival cannibalism on the return voyage.
