I am getting a big present today and it is not in a box. It’s everywhere. It’s being alive, still married, still doing decent work at a level I can handle. It’s seeing my two children, my wife and mother and brother doing well. It’s being able to read play music, ride bikes, live in rural America, and have unimagined blessings unfold each day.

  1. Hello there, I am a San Diego-based hiker. Please let me know if there’s anything I can do to help you out on your trek or if we could meet up on the trail somewhere and I could do a profile on you.

    Good luck!


    1. Hey, Derek. I will be flying into San Diego early afternoon 4/12 and staying with the Mann’s in S.D. . They will be taking me out to the start of the trail early am on 4/14. I think I am all set as far as support between the flight and the first steps north, but I am open to meeting . I plan to post daily via twitter and Trailjournals, and some post on this blog, so you can know where I am. I plan to hitch back to the Kickoff at Lake Morena. You can catch me there. Keep in touch and we can make something happen. Thanks so much for your support.
