Look out Whites, here we come....True to the Thru!!!!!

Wow, what a week, we finally made it to Caratunk, ME. Hendo got sick while on the trail, which delayed us again. But Hendo and Mom are both well and doing good now. Do to our delays, tomorrow Tues 30 Sept, we are getting a ride to Gorham, NH so we can hike the White Mountains of New Hampshire. The Whites are the hardest mountain range on the AT and if we delay our hike through them any longer, we will be shut out by winter weather. As for the rest of Maine and New Hampsire, we have enough time to complete them before winter sets in. Thanks again to everyone for your support and remember why we are doing this...to bring attention to the continuing suicide crisis amongst veterans and to raise support for Soldier Suicide. 22 veteran suicides a day is 22 too many!!!

Conquering Katahdin and the 100 Mile Wilderness

I know it has been a while since an update, but it took us 14 days to get through the 100 Mile Wilderness, during which time we were on the trail and without internet.  We were able to connect to the internet upon arriving here in Monson, ME, but I have been busy nursing Mom while she has been sick.  I have uploaded all of our pictures and will add commentary as time allows.

Maine has been challenging, but amazingly beautiful at the same time!!!
