Outdoor enthusiast. Hiking for the challenge, the thrill, the adventure. Looking to figure it all out. This is really just a personal journey, but thought some people would want to get involved and this is a good way to give back. I figured ... more

- Mile ??? - Sep 21st, 2015

All,
Thanks again. I'm still adjusting to the real world. Things are going well. Life continues. The trail is always missed but always with me. I'm spending the next month or two visiting friends and family and doing some handyman work. I am happy and humbled.
As for the donations, if you sign in via the hikefor.com webpage, the welcome screen provides direct links to both charities (St. Jude's and TNC). Please click the "pay here" icon in the bottom right corner and proceed as directed. After donating, please update your account to reflect your donated amount.
I can't thank you all enough. This was the best experience of my life. I will always carry it with me. It will carry me through life. Everything is possible.
Ride the wave of life.
Keep in touch!
Michelangelo

I am amazed by your journey! Your writing logs make for great reading...I see wonderful fodder for an article in OUTSIDE. I just read a stat: Each year, thousands of hikers attempt a thru-hike; only about one in four make it all the way. I totally believe, heart and soul, that you will make it...and write about it later. Enjoy your adventure! Erica and the Zoo
