Paul was a large man, a larger man than I. His boots are large, leather, and heavy. I imagine they looked just right on him, being a man of large stature himself. If I could, I’d wear them myself, but they are several sizes larger than my own. So here they will travel, tucked into the straps on my backpack. I’ll be sure to see that they get just as dirty. It’s an honor to shoulder the load so that #PaulWalksOn. Here’s Paul during breakfast overlooking #ThePriest from #ThreeRidges in #Virginia on the #AppalachianTrail. I played Crimson And Clover by Tommy James and The Shondells while we took our break. His wife informed me it was one of his favorite songs and he would play it on repeat, or rather, “over and over”. To the point where she would threaten him with bodily harm. She is a crafter and her favorite threat was “don’t be surprised when you wake up with green sequins on your balls… and I’ll be using pins not glue!” Haha. @rei @ducttapethenbeer
