27 November 2009

The day after Thanksgiving.  Reintegrating into society.  Had a lovely dinner with a group of people yesterday who knew I hiked the trail.  Yet, not a single question was asked or comment given.  At the same time, congratulations are pouring in from around the world.

From such a major undertaking and acheivement, many lessons are learned.  Some now, others in the future.

To share the adventure with other hikers, people in the trail towns, blog readers, Trail Angels, family and friends has been my honor.

Thank you to all who supported me in so many different ways, your thoughts and actions are appreciated much more than you realize.
