I got a message Friday, 7-20-12 from my HRC, Martha, that I had gotten a box in the mail. Addressed to me, C/O Martha. She opened the box and it was full of hikin' love and supplies, tuna, trail bars, vitamin C tabs, hard candies, crackers n cheese...lots more and a book!
This random box of off-trail magic was from Noelle Mercado. I don't know Noelle, never met her. She read my blog and was "inspired"! She and her husband and kids do some hiking, rock climbing, but now are thinking about some longer distance hiking!
That is AWESOME!
NOELLE--if you are out there, HUGE THANKS! You ROCK! Your kind words helped me continue to know why I'm out here doing this. Good luck on your endeavors, keep Martha and me posted.
Check out HikerResupply on Facebook, and please e-mail Martha so she can thank you, too. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
He's back at it!
People who know me know that I belong on the Trail. I've thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail (twice),the Pacific Crest Trail and the mighty Continental Divide Trail. I've hiked many of the long trails here in Michigan including being the first to hike both the Ironwood Trail and the Great Lake To Lake Trail. In 2016, I hiked the Israel National Trail and the Golan Heights Trail. My next goal is to be the first person ever to hike the Baja Divide Trail.
The purpose of this blog is to keep anyone who is interested informed of my progress and to encourage those who are able to support me in this endeavor.
