Day 61 Daleville Va

Miles hiked zero
Total miles  723.5

We took a zero today. We rested most of the day.  We had lunch at Wendy's and got resupplied at the grocery store.  Everything was very close.

Sassafras did an interview with Yahoo news and Scholastic magazine. She is getting a lot of positive attention. I am very proud of her. Kaboose

Today was fun. We took a zero. We relaxed a lot. We did all our chores. We went to Wendy's for the first time during the trip. Sassafras

It's great to see us "old" guys with adventurous spirit. Sassafras, take care of your dad. He obviously loves you very much. You're both creating memories that will last a lifetime. A great big THANK YOU for sharing. Ganbatte!!

  4. Hello. Chimming me in fron Mongu, Zambia. Just saw this on Yahoo! and wanted to wish you guys all the very best. I am inspired so I am sending this off to my daughter who is in boarding school. Great work and keep fighting the good fight. With much love and admiration from Africa.

  5. Just found your blog after reading your article on yahoo and I found it very inspiring. Keep it up and I look forward to reading future posts and watching your videos on YouTube.

  6. I am a section hiker from Vermont who's been following your blog for about 2 weeks, and I have a 10 year old daughter. You guys are awesome! Keep up the blogging, and keep on walking. Sassafras, if you make it out of Virginia, I will donate $300 to the Foodbank.


  7. I also came across your adventure on yahoo. I think it is a wonderful thing you are both doing and I wish you all the best. I live in Italy (That's the one in Europe !!! ) and find your video reports of the AP really interesting. It gives me an impression of what the early settlers discovered and the native Indians were already appreciating.
    Wilderness and Wonder !

  8. Again, ZERO days are GREAT and nothing wrong with Wendy's. :)
