Thursday, October 11

You are invited to a celebration of Gary being home on October 20, at 4:00 p.m. at our house.  Please contact me for directions if you need.  Stop in, have a snack, look at pictures and hear a tale or two.

    My husband and I have been enjoying this blog. We live too far away to attend the party. We were wondering if you could publish some "statistics" when you get time, such as....
    --How many days did this take?
    --How many cameras did he go through?
    --How many nights camping, hostel, hotel, etc?
    --What was his favorite section of the trail?
    --What was his least favorite section of the trail?
    --What were his favorite acts of kindness?
    --What was the worst part of the trip for him?
    and anything else he would like to share.

    Thanks for sharing your experiences with us, we really enjoyed reading them.

  2. I discovered this blog several months ago and have enjoyed viewing the pictures and reading the comments. The trip is a great accomplishment and I'm sure Gary has many things to say about it. Since I've done sections of the AT in CT, MA and Maine, I would be interested in reading Gary's journal and viewing additional pictures, specifically the western Maine section in the Rangeley / Stratton, Maine area.
