“MOUNTAINTOP!!!”

 

I FINALLY made it to the top just now. I took a break a little ways back, took my pack off, laid my head on my pack and fell sound asleep for who knows how long! I’m confident that no other hikers passed me as I would hope they would check to see if I were alive. I guess my body is trying to tell me something.
I will try to make it to the next shelter a few miles away and may even take a zero at the shelter to see if that helps.

I have learned two things along my tough climb today. First, THERE IS POWER IN YOUR WORDS!!! You have no idea how much each of you inspired me to make it to the top of this mountain, just as I know in my heart that you will continue to inspire me to make it to the top of Mount Katahdin in Maine!!! The second thing that I learned through today’s experience came from Gary Ayers & Lisa George.

I am a “‪#‎MAROONSTRONG‬ MUSTARD SEED” who can move ANY mountain!!!

I LOVE YOU GUYS, EACH & EVERY ONE.
OF YOU!!!!!!!
