Semi-retired. Sometimes single. 50.....ish. Occasional bon-vivant.
Last summer he walked 2,600 miles from Mexico to Canada along the Pacific Crest Trail. He went through 3 pairs of shoes, numerous unmatched socks and insoles. At the start he wore a shoe size 10. After 5 months and 6 million foot steps his feet swelled to a size 11.5.
Two summers prior, he walked the Appalachian Trail, twenty-one hundred miles from Georgia to Maine. What was suppose to take 6 months took 15 months. A left foot stress fracture derailed his hopes of a "thru-hike" and kept him sidelined for months at a time. He did manage to lose 25 pounds consuming mostly Snickers Bars, Pop-Tarts and Slim Jims.
Thirty days after finishing the Appalachian Trail he conquered Tanzania's Mt. Kilimanjaro, the world's 4th highest peak at 19,341 feet. Like a little girl playing hop- scotch, he skipped and sang his way to the top.
He is currently training to kayak down the mighty Mississippi River in 2016.
This summer he gets to run around Easton in a dress without getting arrested.
Having spent a good portion of these last few years living in a little green tent in the woods among the rocks, he needs help. But not that kind of help. He needs your help to help Hospice because Hospice helps with your help.
