    Congrats to ALL, but I’m sad to see Jake finish, only because I’ve enjoyed his Vlogging. He and Zoom Zoom passed me in Franklin, NC and I watched every step from that point on.

    I also received one of Jake’s drawings and have it displayed in my office. Jimmy always asks if thru hikers ever met someone prior to their hike , with most staying, no. I have had the opportunity once, but these two are the first ones I’ve met while they were actively attempting it.

    Way to go everyone listed and to those who aren’t. I’m interested to see the final numbers for the year and more pictures of joyous celebration.
