Hello everybody.


Will be hiking soon with my brother and can’t wait. He lives out near Roanoke and for almost 40 years now I have been here in the islands. So after our adult lifetimes apart it is going to be kinda like going back to little kid times to be out there on the trail together.

We are both retired, have the time to do this and wives and adult children whom are supportive. The goal is to start from Damascus on March 16 and enjoy each day for as many days as we can. If we hold up, we’ll summit Katahdin in early August then get a lift down to Georgia and hike north back towards Virginia. Alright looking forward to meeting a bunch of you on the trail!
