Hiawassee


Before I start a post, I need everyone to think/pray for my friend Connie. We went to college together and were roomates for a year before she graduated. She was pregnant with triplets. Just about the time that Ashleigh was born I found out she was having triplets and that it had been touch and […]

Neels Gap


Well, we have made the first 30 miles. I’ll be semi-brief. The Approach Trail kinda sucked. The last mile it started sleeting hard up to Springer. We stayed for about 15 minutes on the top where a ridge runner was taking a poll of hikers and he told us we could make it to Stover […]

Georgia


So, here we are in Georgia. I didn’t think I’d post again but Chris grabbed the laptop at the last minute this morning so he could download more maps tonight. We’ll send it back with my dad tomorrow. We left Texas at 5am and I slept through East Texas and Louisiana. It was smooth sailing […]

No Pain, No Rain, No Maine

Last Thursday we went to the Ft. Worth Botanic Garden for a walk about the garden. I love this garden because it is free to get into and it has a lot of open space for picnicking and lazing about if that is what you are into. Many of the spring bulbs were up and […]

Resting


I started coming down with what I thought to be a cold but now think is a sinus infection late last week. It has since knocked me down and I’ve been hibernating in my in-laws movie room watching all sorts of chick flicks and BBC America for Dr. Who. It isn’t pleasant; I’m sick and […]

Preparing Maildrops


Well, one thing we learned with mail drops is that lunches are the hardest part of the planning process. And we bought slightly too much food. For Christmas we received money to go towards buying dehydrated food for our mail drops. Chris went online and scoped out deals and found a lot of food for […]
