This is a friend I met at the ranch, hiking the AT, and a bit from his journal.
“I know the memories will fade. The trip will be defined in our favorite photographs and a cool slide show. The texture and nuance of what the AT has been will fade. But what will never fade is the relationships that have been forged over 2,000 miles of hiking. The AT is about people. It is about a shared struggle. When it’s all said and done, that’s what life is when it is at its best. A shared struggle with people you love.”
