I learned this morning that Soleman who was scheduled to start at Springer passed away suddenly on Sunday. This post in the HikersRus Yahoo group which he helped to form made the announcement. Soleman has a journal on Trailjournals. I encourgage each of you to sign his Guest Book to show his family that his AT Family is thinking of him and what his passing means. God Bless him and his family.
It's with a heavy heart that I tell you this news.
Last night, Ted Anderson (Soleman), the life blood of the hikersRus group, passed away suddenly. I spoke with his wife Roxanne, and she repeated how excited he was to do his hike. He was days away from starting his dream hike with pack 3/1. We will miss him tremendously. We lost a good friend, a fellow hiker, and an inspiration to us all. I will be hiking the trail for Ted, my hiking partner.
God bless you Soleman.
