A hike on Ohio's Buckeye Trail. On March 20, 2011 Captain Blue is heading out for a hike on the Buckeye Trail starting in Dayton, Ohio. The plan is to hike on the Buckeye Trail for as long as it is fun. This could be several days, several weeks or several months. The name of my blog comes from my trail name, Captain Blue, and the painted blue blazes which mark the path of the Buckeye Trail.
