Prayerful, hope you weather gets better! John
WOW!! Between the pictures and the great updates about your travels, this seems to be a biography in progress. Thanks for sharing your adventures, and the best of luck to you. Hopefully, the worst is behind you and the best is yet to come.
Why is Chief drinking Coke? I thought he was a Diet Vernors man. No doubt you need to take what you can get while on the trail. The 16 mile day is impressive. Keep it up. Good Luck!
We are all rooting for you, Mike and Tina! Thanks for your great updates and pictures. We are praying for your safety and strength! Stay away from those bears! Smile
Always fun seeing and hearing of your adventures. Thanks for sharing. This is as close to the trail as we’ll ever get. Stay strong!!
Truly enjoyable reading the updates and exciting surprises you’re both encountering! Now I understand why I’m not seeing you at the Shelby GC, Mike!! Will keep you both in our prayers for a safe and enjoyable “bucket-list” journey! Be safe!
Sending lots of love and a “HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY” GREETING to Toad on Sunday 5/10/15
May she be blessed with great “trail magic” on that day!!!!! GOD BLESS
Mike – Tina – We are really enjoying your updates. Stay Safe Bill & Karen Hope
Back on line after time of “computer blow up” sure don’t want to miss out on your great adventures!!! GOD Bless and watch over your steps. Miss you both.
I enjoyed my time with the two of you. I have found true friends for life. That is what this trail is all about. Can’t wait to see you in the future. You are in my prayers, wish I was still hiking with you. From one Chief to another, and a Toad
Prayers are always sent for your protection, it’s the least I can do for you brave souls. Love you! Auntie Jo
Thought I’d see a picture of a rattlesnake!
Just catching up on your latest pics. Enjoy your upcoming respite before you before you tackle the second leg of your journey.
Sending prayers and thoughts. I am impressed with the success that the two of you have completed. Maine here you come. Received a nice letter from John last week. Keep on trekking and having fun on your adventure.
God Bless, Chief 2 Feathers
What a challenge! You two are the best! Keep those feet, legs, backs healthy! God bless.
