Sorry if this has already been posted, but opened up my internet browser and see a familiar face! Big story on Sassafras and Kaboose hiking the AT right on the front page. Pretty cool to see any AT hikers and WB members get some mainstream recognition.

great story, i hiked with them for almost 500 miles.
shes a sweet kid. you could see how close daughter and dad were.made my heart soar to see the love they shared. at 13 yrs old, she was more than capable, not only kept up with dad, but pushed him sometimes to his limits.
wonderful people, im rooting for them the whole way.

Interesting/refreshing to see a thru hike covered on a mainstream site. The comment section is overwhelmingly positive. Good stuff.

My wife and her daughter were pretty excited about it. She is a girl scout and has backpacked!

I would absolutely love to have the opportunity to take one of my children on a thru hike when they get older. What an amazing bonding experience that must be.
