Well, I did it. I got my tattoo and a haircut. I donít feel like a new man though. My friend told me that I would be a new man. I still feel the same, old.

I went to Brunswick today and hooked up with Shiloh, a WhiteBlaze member. Shiloh thru hiked in 2008. We sat and talked for 2 Ĺ hours. It was great to see his eye light up when he talked about his thru hike. I know I will feel the same way when I tell my tale of my thru hike. He showed me many of his photos from his hike. I enjoyed every one of them knowing I would be doing the same to others in the future. I think I was just as excited seeing his photos and listening to his stories as he was doing his show and tell.

    GREAT tattoo! Love the color, love the symbol. My husband's considering getting one after our thru next year. What inspired your tattoo?

    I got the tattoo for two reasons. I am thru hiking this year and also because I am the owner of WhiteBlaze so it only seems appropriate to get the WhiteBlaze logo.
