Appalachian Trail Book
Gatewood Publishing
Outdoor Adventures

Paralee's journal breaks all the rules. Her theme is "Hiking the Appalachian Trail". Journaling is different; there are no rules, no rights or wrongs. She is absolutely free to express herself. The Appalachian Trail is her writing prompt. Her focus is on content not form, quickly writing down the day’s events. Living a Dream is Paralee's journal which includes her thoughts, experiences, and observations as she hiked along the Appalachian Trail, continuously for several months. After a very long day of incessant hiking, the chore of setting up camp for the night, and finally crawling into her tent with pen and a piece of scrap paper to lastly begin writing freely her thoughts for the day giving a good report of the countryside, the landscape, plant and animal life, human activity, historical sites, and useful advice for future hikers and campers. Throughout Living a Dream you will find remarkable information about the origin of the Appalachian Trail, updates, resources and advice for being a successful hiker as you explore your own adventure.


"August 2008-Climb up Katahdin, Maine
It was raining most of the day, but it stayed cooler than if the sun had been out. We did not have any views at the top, but I was just so glad being there, I didn't even mind. It took us six hours to climb up and another six to come back down. I think we could have completed the entire climb in ten hours if it hadn't been so wet and slippery.
What a feeling of accomplishment it was when I finally reached the summit of this magnificent mountain. How exciting, watching the excitement of the thru-hikers as they reached the top of Katahdin, ending a very long hike, from Georgia to Maine. Some had tears of joy while others rushed up to the sign and kissed it overwhelmed and excited that they had just completed such a challenging adventure. Several hikers told me that the climb up Katahdin was the hardest part of the Trail for them.
The trip pushed me to the edge of my comfort zone, propelling me to a place I wasn't sure I cared to be. Even though it was only a little over five miles up, it was more than I ever expected and the hardest thing I have ever done. I don't think I could have done the hike alone and was fortunate to have four other hikers go up with me."
