    I live in Dalton Massachusetts which is right along the trail. I see, and occasionally speak to, hikers passing through and admire their constitutions to make the hike and spend the time with nature.

    To all of you, regardless of age, and whether or not you ever complete the entire journey, I say BRAVO! I admire your stamina and dedication.
