  2. My 50K walk with Multiple Sclerosis

    Most of us take walking for granted. It's just something we do. We pop out of bed in the morning, zip around during the day, and get off our feet at night. It's not something we think about until something happens that changes how we move.

    Up early and hiked 3.5 miles to Rock Gap just as Ron Haven from Franklin, NC pulls in with his free shuttle. A real character. He shuttles hikers, gives them info., works with churches to provide free breakfast to hikers, and gives you a decent room at a decent price...out of the kindness of his heart! A night's rest, shower, and laundry does a man good!

    Left Franklin after a free pancake breakfast at the local Baptist Church. Met trail angels with candy and fruit. (About Trail ...
