For some strange reason that I cant wrap my arms around… I have to get back to the trail !!! My family and I have been discussing this knowing that I can no longer finish the trail as a Thru- Hiker. The plan is to return to the trail in Maine at the end of june after my recovery…. then hike south as far as I can with the remaining 6 weeks I have before I return to work. I still wont be able to complete the trail back to Harpers Ferry and my brief aqua blaze this year…. however, I will have enough vacation next year to finish the remaining trail miles and complete this awesome journey !!! This hike has defied description by my journal entries….. The beauty, the peace, the awesome people I have met, the support from so many I dont even know….and those I do. Most awesome is the grace that I have received even with difficult challenges and an injury set back….. Everything happens for a reason ! Its not the way I had planned to hike the trail… but I can still get it done as a section hiker….. with BIG sections !
I m so excited to have the support from home and all of you….. All things are possible !
Tank…… Im not much of a Tank anymore…. more like a HalfTrack as one of my friends has suggested.
