    Pretty cool little dude and his little osprey!!

    I seen this other day and forgot to check it out, thanks for posting it. They seem like real people I wish them the best!!

    ( I wanted to add an after thought about little Harvey's stride ya know he's so small his stride is probably 3 to 1 compared to mom and dad meaning 20,000 steps for them about 10 miles is 60,000 for him ) .

    I live close enough to the trail and if they make it this far I would gladly shuttle them and take them in for the night.

    As long as there's no charge !!

    I just got finished watching their last video, I'm enjoying watching them. That lil Harvey is no snowflake neither is mom or dad.

    They had to go around the smokies because of 3'snow drifting. They started into the smokies but was smart enough to turn around when they heard what was up there.

    The last video they were at uncle Johnnys, for 2 nights with a slackpack. Which is a really hilarious story involved with that slackpack so funny. No I'm not gonna tell ya go watch it.

    So by my calculations they are averaging about 10 mile days and that's with zeros. Not a bad start all things considered. Keep going Suttons........

    These trail troopers are still heading north. Watched them go through Damascus and did a little video with lone wolf and Ramindo.

    Watching them go through Grayson Highlands and little Harvey with the wild ponies the cutest thing ever.

    And then there biggest day yet a 15.5 mile day to partnership shelter for pizza, a nice treat for a 4 year old after a long day of hiking.

    But the cutest thing was Watching mom teach little Harvey how to snot rocket princess!!

    Rock on Suttons!!

    I'm familiar with the barefoot sisters, but not with the "family " described in the southbound?
