Success! They Did It

Kirk and Lisa made it to Katahdin!

Each summer I follow some hikers attempting the Appalachian Trail or another long distance trail. This year I chose three -- a single young lady (Appalachian Trail), a newly wed couple (Kirk and Lisa) and a retired couple hiking the American Discovery Trail.

Kirk and Lisa were married September 25, 2004 and started the AT in Georgia on February 26. In early May they left the trail for a few days to take physicals for the Peace Corp. Unfortunately, Lisa's physical revealed a tumor that required surgery. After surgery and recovery they returned to the trail and completed the AT on October 1.

Congratuations, Kirk and Lisa. I admire you and greatly enjoyed your journal, your photos and the opportunity to follow your adventure.
