Friday August 11

The first thing you will notice when out step outside today will be the humidity. The air warm and sticky air mass will also show off more clouds and bring us some thunderstorms over the next two days until we clear it out for the end of the weekend. This is good news for the start of our Maryland Trek on the summit of Wisp, but also through the beaches. But first, we must get through the next two days… and the timing will mainly be afternoons and overnight.

Showers and storms today

Only a slight risk for any storm to turn severe. But there could be some heavy thunderstorms… The next chance will be this evening and overnight for metro areas.

Maryland Trek 2017

On Sunday August 13 my team will join me for my 4th 329 mile hike and bike across Maryland. We will start on the summit of Wisp and do a minimum of 41 miles each day.  The weather always is a factor so I will begin to focus on our route each day. At this point, the threat of rain may be with us through early next week, but statewide we should be quiet and cool next Wednesday through Friday. Those are the days we travel from Frederick through central Maryland and then on to the Eastern Shore and finish in Ocean City on Saturday August 19.

Donations now being accepted. Please select “Cool Kids Campaign” in the options to add to our entire team’s total.

Milestones this year:

  • I will do my 1000th mile on Day 1 in Garrett County
  • We aim to reach $100,000 for Cool Kids Campaign for the entire event.
