This was a big week for Will… he hit the 1,000 mile mark on Wednesday! WOW! I haven’t visited the past couple of weekends, but last weekend Will’s dad drove up to visit him in Luray, VA. I know it meant a lot to Will to have his dad there and I hear they made lots of memories!
Root Beard has made it through Shenandoah National Park and will be in Harper’s Ferry, West Virginia tomorrow morning (yes… he’s out of Virginia!). Harper’s Ferry is the home base of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy and is considered the “psychological midpoint” of the AT. I’ve heard so many good things about Harper’s Ferry, and it is such a milestone on the AT, so I’ve been planning on visiting Will there since he got started. I’m getting an EARLY start tomorrow morning to pick Will up in Harper’s Ferry, then we’re driving over to the Washington, DC area on Saturday since it’s only about an hour away! Catch up with you soon!
