Hiking vicariously

My cousin Jason has been hiking the Appalachian Trail since April 1st. Through the miracles of modern science (don't ask me how--I'm not that good), he sends pictures to his mom every night, and she posts them online on a trail journal. Today we got our first real text post. It has been fun to watch him, follow his progress on a map of the AT, and now share his thoughts. I was touched by his closing and share it with you:
Oh Great Spirit Who made all races Look kindly upon the whole Human Family and take away the arrogance and hatred which seperates us from our Brothers. Cherokee Prayer
What a delightful young man he is--we can't wait for him to finish his trek in October and spend a few days with us when he comes down off the mountain in Katahdin. If you're interested in Jason's adventures, you can follow his at Trail journals

  1. Wow! What a great adventure. Thanks for sharing the link to his journal.


Welcome, thanks for stopping by. Now that you've heard our two cents, perhaps you have a few pennies to throw into the discussion. Due to a bunch more anonymous spam getting through, I've had to disallow anonymous comments. I try to respond to all comments posing a question, but may not always get to you right away.
