  1. nice job guys. I have been folowing you for the whole deal. enjoy harpers ferry, a nice little town. and keep moving.

  2. Great job guys! I enjoyed the 187 miles I hiked with you and the other thru hikers. I may head north in a month or so and hike with Handstand for a few weeks.
    Have fun and be safe my friends!

  3. Congrats! Awesome!! I was #252 then they had to remake my photo so ended up 260 something. Enjoy the 1-2 miles out of Harpers Ferry as they will be the easiest on the trail. Again great job, I knew you could do it!

  4. great job guys. i have been following you since the beginning enjoy harpers ferry and then push on. stay safe

  5. YIPPEEE, Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m very happy for you. If you can make it to Harper’s Ferry you can make it to Katahdin. The best is yet to come. Don’t be surprised when you get to Katahdin that you are under 200 checking in, because half the people who check in at HF get off the trail, and many slow down and get sidetracked in New England. You will fly through PA. Camel up in the mornings, water gets scarce from PA through NY. But, the good news is that almost daily you can get a hot meal along the trail all the way to Falls Village, Conn.

  6. If just joe meets up with y’all, take it easy on him. And get him to grow out his beard again. Just Joe’s daughter, Keri.

  7. Congratulations to both of you.! I have been following you both since the start of your journey. I am quite enthralled with your daily entries and read them as soon as they enter my e-mail. As a novice section hiker, having completed only the 100 mile wilderness section from Monson to Mt Katahdin in 8 days last year, I am very impressed with your daily mileage and your fortitude to push through everyday despite the weather and other physical issues that you have to deal with on a regular basis. Again , Congratulations and please keep the updates coming . You Both inspire me to hike more sections and maybe one day be a Thru Hiker as the 2 of you. All The Best and Stay Strong ! Ed Malloy
