i'm loving your journal entries -- especially the trail magic and someone thinking amanda was a bear!
it sounds like you're having amazing experiences and that you're actually taking care to be mindful of being present along the way ...
in peace and with hope,
Amanda and Josh,
Came across your site from Trailjournals, love the site!! I did the AT in'89, Best thing I ever did!!
Best of luck to you on your adventure. The best advice I can give is to not forget to smell the roses!! I had many wonderful experiences along the way, most because I stopped to see the world around me!!
To the parents: The AT is one of the safest places Josh and Amanda can be, thru hikers look out for each other!!
Live vicariously thru their experinces!!!

Dear cabin boy and amanda,
you guys are so lucky I wish I could take time off and go on a great adventure.But I cant so make damn sure you enjoy every minute of your really long walk. I will be thinking of both of you and saying a prayer for a safe trip.

You two are doing so well!! I am very proud of your progress. Thank you for the journal descriptions and photos. It seems as if I am there with you, in spirit anyway. Please get lots of rest. Warmest regards...Harry Little
Hi Josh & Amanda:
I've really enjoyed reading your journal entries; you are making amazing progress! Sorry the plan to "follow Spring up the trail" is not quite in sync with the actual weather. Hang in there, keep each other warm and safe, and keep posting the great photos. In return, Josh, I promise to refrain from slipping any astronomical questions into your Guestbook: just know that you are missed around the lab!

Hope you are doing well on your adventure. You don't know me, but Amanda's mother taught my daughter when she was in kindergarten. She told me about your website and journey so I thought I would check it out. Congratulations on your wedding. You two make a beautiful couple. Be careful on your trip and keep us all updated!
