We flew home today. Sassafras is happy to be home. We will see her doctor asap. Her toes are very sore and it breaks my heart to think how strong she was hiking so long in such pain. It looks like I will get back on the trail next week and continue hiking. When Sassafras is cleared to come back on the trail and if she want to she will come out and finish the hike.
Thank you to all support and kind words. Anyone who knows Sassafras will tell you she is a very special girl. If she ends her adventure at the 1400 mile mark it still was a great success. She had fun, challenged herself, met many wonderful people. I hope she will have positive feelings about our adventure and the time we spent together. Kaboose.
