We've been thinking about a little Trail Magic ever since seeing Josh's picture standing next to the Little Debbie truck. [We lived six years on the opposite side of Chattanooga from the Little Debbie plant in Collegedale, TN.] This will be like an early "Welcome to Pennsylvania" TM. We have a friend in Harpers Ferry who will try to have it waiting for you at the AT office on May 8th, but if that doesn't work out, go look up Justin Radford at the NPS Interpretive Design Center (on the historic old Storer College campus). Hopefully this will provide a little flavor of Philadelphia before you hit the PA line (and, so we hear, lots of rocks)...

I wish Chatter and I could have hiked with You two much more than we did.Thanks for taking pictures of me high on the Dragon's tooth..I may never do that again!
Health and peace, Sandalwood
PS For super canoeing go to Algonquin Park and for super kayaking/camping/photography/stargazing check out NE shores of Georgian Bay..eg Bayfield Inlet.

My mother said that you needed someone from ND to email you so that you would have all 50 states covered. I am emailing you from the UND of North Dakota and hope that you are having an amazing time on your trip.

Josh and Amanda,
Awesome journal. I stumbled upon it on trailjournals.com and have been hooked ever since. I am a beginning backer, and reading your journal has caused my passion for backpacking to snowball! It was a dream of mine to one day hike the AT, and you both are helping me to see that, that dream can become a reality. May God be with you.

Josh & Amanda,
We've been enjoying your journal entries and keeping up with your travels since meeting you at breakfast, way back in March at the Smokey Mountain Diner in Hot Springs, NC. In looking over your pictures I noticed the little bright red bug. BEWARE! It's a chigger or AKA "Red Bug". It's a mite larvae and will burrow under your skin (ewwwww). After it burrows, it bites and a small red welt will appear. And it gets worse! The welts itch like GANGBUSTERS! So, keep your socks tucked into your boots and watch where you sit in the woods (or almost sit)... Ain't Mother Nature grand?!
