Week 30

Here it is- our final week. It was bitter-sweet. Our souls weren’t ready to be done, but our bodies were. There were tears of all different emotions. We couldn’t believe we did it. We never had to turn back, never had to quit, but had loads of fun, made tons of memories, and grew as a family over the past 6 months.

Thank you for reading our blog posts about the day to day life on the trail. We have lots of ideas for the future, but until then, we’re going to sleep and eat as much as we want!

  8. I am also so glad to see your posts as it’s been a while. I am also a parent to two, now grown, children. I understand the demands of parenting. I can only imagine it coupled with hiking the Appalachian Trail. I’m glad you made it!
