Hike for John

We have had many visitors to the Chief and Toad blog, as well as those who plan to follow our progress on the Appalachian Trail.  Please check out the “Hike for John” page on the menu.  This is a fundraising opportunity to help  a very close friend of ours, John Gurney, who is fighting melanoma.

Right now, we are packing our backpacks and getting ready to head to Georgia in April.  We are following online other thru-hikers who have started hiking the trail and the weather conditions they have encountered.  It is still rather cool in the south, especially in the higher elevations.  Hopefully, we experience more mild temperatures when we begin.

More details to follow soon…
