Completed 800 Miles!!! Heading to Maine

So we successfully passed the 800 mile mark yesterday and made it safely into Buena Vista, VA.  We have been able to arrange transportation up to Maine, so we are headed north to begin hiking south.  We are doing this because the weather up north will turn nasty soon.  So, if we continue heading north we could be closed out and not be able to finish due to weather.  Therefore, while the weather is good we will head up and hike south to finish.  We will summit Mt. Katahdin on Sunday 24 August is anyone wants to join us.  I know this is short notice and I apologize, but the offer still stands.

Thank you to everyone who has donated money so far to help us in our endeavor.  We are still in need of funds in order to continue hiking past September, so please feel free to pass on this website and our fundraising site,, to one and all.  Every little bit helps!!
