Congratulations and welcome home! We are unbelievably proud.
I am so grateful I was able to hike with you for a small portion of the AT. It was fun to chat, laugh, meet your constant-companion Gator and experience the simplicity and challenges of daily life as a hiker. I will cherish that weekend always.
Thank you for teaching me so much: to be humble before nature, to be fearless, and most importantly: to just keep going.
I look forward to your next adventure!
