A quick update as of 4/29/19 on Age Disruptor and Triple Crown Hiker Mike Fagan. It has been a crazy 72 hours for Mike and team. Mike Fagan sustained a serious injury resulting from a fall while hiking in rain north of Harper’s Ferry W. Virginia. He pitched forward on slippery terrain in the rain and hit his left shoulder on a rock. When he got up, he discovered that he was unable to lift his left arm. Fagan continued to hike to the nearest shelter and called in the incident to his GCHH Support Team. The GCHH van and personnel took Fagan to an Urgent Care facility in Frederick, MD where he received treatment and diagnosis including x-rays. The initial findings are soft tissue damage to the shoulder and rotator cuff. He must return to Arizona for further treatment including an MRI to ascertain whether surgery is required. Fagan, 71, started the trail in Georgia on February 5, and was over 1,000 miles (nearly halfway) into his trek and was expected to reach Katahdin in Maine at the northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail in early to mid-June.
