With 6 days left, the start of a grand adventure looms in the horizon. The Benton MacKay Trail stretches 288 miles from Springer Mountain, GA to Davenport gap on the TN/NC boarder. I plan to cross this trail on foot in a week’s time.
My goal will be to move constantly, and try to cover 40 miles a day which will put me at the finish in 7 days. To track my progress, you can visit Run the BMT home page.
