I met Mike Sedor through a work buddy. I was told that Mike had recently retired as a carpenter and was Thru Hiking the AT last year when he got injured and had to come off the trail. After an email introduction, Mike and I decided to get together and have coffee. Three hours later we were still going. I had never met anyone with so much knowledge about the AT and backpacking.
Mike’s trail name is “Man Scout”. Mike earned the prestigious Wood Badge from Boys Scouts of America and I’m fairly certain he could write the book on it.
We left that day with “Any time you want to get out and hike just let me know”. Several weeks later I tool mike up on that offer. We did the Blue Trail at the Green Lane Reservoir in Green Lane PA. 10 miles. 10 grueling… challenging miles… where Mike shared his knowledge of the environment round him and the patience to do the AT
When that day was over, I was exhausted and beaten by the trail. I thought there was no way I could ever do this. But Man Scout kept reminding me to hike my own hike. Stay within myself.
I haven’t felt prepared to try that trail again (almost there now). So, Man Scout- I’m almost ready to try this again with you. Thank you for being an inspiration
