I'm so proud of the 2 of you. You are so lucky. If everyday is like what we saw on your wedding day. The sense of standing on top of the world and walk the path that so many others have walked. May your guardian angels keep you safe and sound on your life adventure. We will be thinking of you both.

Ahhh so it's been a few days out on the trail.. I hope the weather isn't being evil for you guys. I'm practicing my guitar hero skills to whoop you guys hardcore when you get back :) I hope you guys aren't to sore and tired.. and that neither of you guys have lost your minds!!!
Have a blast!

There is a part of me, the anxious parent part, that wishes I had never bought a pack, had never shown you the splendor of the Smokies, or the beauty of Mt. Ranier and maybe you would still be behind a computer in Chapel Hill, accessible, easily reachable and ready to play Ghost Recon against me. BUT THEN there is the larger part of me eaten up with envy and swelling with pride for what you have attempted and what I know the two of you will together accomplish and all the beauty and splendor, from both people and places, you will witness along the way. You two are "making memories in the mountains" just like I did years ago with you son. Please be safe Josh; keep Amanda safe. Love you two very much. Sincerely;
Your anxious DAD

Hi Josh and Amanda,
Met you guys up at the Springer Mt Shelter Sunday night (2/17/2008). Spoke with you guys a little bit. I truly hope you have a great hike up to Maine. I honestly didn't want to head back south Monday morning however, work beckoned. I look forward to keeping up with your journals and tracking your progress. Let me know if I can help you guys out where I can.
Semper Fi and Happy Trails,
Fellow White Blazer and Thru Hiker sending you good vibes. Love the site. My wife and I thru hiked in 07 and I couldn't have been happier having her as a partner. You guys are going to have a blast!!
