    Default Believe it or not, I'm still alive

    Actually, I was out hiking the Appalachian Trail for the past six and half months, which I did complete, all 2,189.1 miles of it.

    Yes, I am very backlogged, but I do intend to resume making custom lights in the next few weeks.

    EDIT: For those who asked for more details, you can probably find too much info on my blog.

    Once things leave my hands I am not responsible for what happens.

    Awesome! Congrats on doing the entire AT. One of my bucket list items.
    Who needs to see the light at the end of the tunnel when you have friends on CPF?

    Did you have any flashlights with you?! If so, I am guessing aaa throw away batteries or something similar!

    Congratulations! I'll bet you have a story or two... Solo, or with someone/ a group if I may ask?
