i’m chilling at dad’s crib for a day or two after getting off trail just short of Boling Springs, PA. stayed tuned for more updates. i’m going to try to scan in a few pictures and update the site. for those who have been asking: yes, i did skip a section the shanendoah national park. yes, i did get from harpers ferry to pine grove furnace quickly (but by walking, not by canoeing :-)). no, i am no longer going by “three sock”. yes, i do wish i had the time, energy, and access to a computer to have a more detailed web site, but i don’t… so Dad’s entries will have to do. deal with it. yes, i am finally going to switch to my digital camera, so the web site will eventually have many wonderful pictures. yes, i really did lose 35 pounds, though i’m still sporting some love handles. no, you don’t get used to going five days without a shower. and finally: yes, i’m still having tons of fun!
