View Full Version : flying out tomorrow

03-19-2013, 12:43
The time has come. I am flying from Boston to Atlanta with my 13 year old daughter (sassafras) to our NOBO thru hike. We got the call from Leigh from the Hiker Hostel to confirm our pick up time. We both can not wait to get started.

We hope to meet many of you on the trail

Any one else starting 3/21/13?

Hi Mainebob,

Was looking at your blog yesterday thinking that you would be leaving soon and wanted to send you and your daughter well wishes! My father and I will be right behind you but doubt we will ever catch you. Sassafrass seems like such a strong, young hiker! Hopefully the two father/daughter teams from Maine will have the opportunity to meet up!

I'll be there as well. I'm the last hiker they're picking up from the airport.

Saw your videos. Wish you the best on the trail.

Dude, I hope both of you have a terrific hike.

Here's wishing you and your daughter all the best. Maybe our paths will cross once you get to SNP, my weekend playground.

Have a safe trip. What a great experience for the two of you. My friend and I are heading out in 3 weeks maybe we will see you.

Have a great hike, Sassafras and Kaboose! I'll be following along, looking forward to the day Cody and I make it out. Thanks again for sharing your gear videos, they were a big help in getting out supplies together. Be safe!

Good luck...I had a bad string of it and had to postpone my hike to next year.

Kaboose and Sassafrass,

Hope your checking WB while out on the trail. Tried to post to your blog but it didn't work. Just checked your newest update and wanted to say, "AWESOME"! I'm rooting for you. Keep up the good work!
