Days 5 and 6


Day 5- N.O.C to Fontana - 29 miles


Crossing Fontana Dam


Day 6- Fontana to Newfound Gap - 41 miles

Also, just thought I'd share an article from the local paper back home HERE.  I am officially famous now.

  1. I love the videos! Gives me something to look forward to when I get home. Glad to see you got a nice break in a hotel room. Mongold would have had a turkey dinner after all that silly gobbling you did. :)

  2. Adam and Kadra, very good stuff! You are providing some serious motivation for me. No excuses for me trying to bail on my 10 miler this morning. I am glad to see you guys moving along well. Take care.

  3. Turkeys are in love with Adam. Just think you might be known by the thru hikers as the man who has the turkeys follow him. You ran a beautiful section from Fontana to Newfound, but it is tough. So much climbing. Glad you did not see any wild pigs. I know you went through their fenced in areas. Glad to hear you both are doing so well. God has his hand on your's and Kadra's shoulder.

  7. I'm loving these video updates! thinking of you two out there everyday and pray that you haven't had to brave any storms like we've had here. Amazing how far you've come already. Hard to believe this time next week you'll be in our neck of the woods!!
