There are lies that hikers tell every day. Here are some that I have heard:

– it’s all downhill from here

– Virginia is flat

– Awol’s book of lies and the AT Handbook of no truth

– the water source isn’t far away

– the rocks aren’t that bad (in Pa or anywhere)

– the shelter is .1 away

– the rocks stop at the PA/NJ border

– the trail will be easier for all the tourists

– water is available at this place for free (it actually costs money)

– the terrain isn’t too steep

About Renee

I enjoy adventures. Whether running marathons, thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail, working with Service Adventure, or working with youth as Program Director of Swan Lake Christian Camp for 9 years, I have encountered many an adventure. On this site I will try to capture the big and small ones for you. Enjoy!

  1. Love this post and the lies. Are you an active participant in this aspect of the hike? Somehow I have a feeling you have maybe contributed some of your own.
