Ivy Creek Valley – August 2018 Shenandoah NP Shakedown Hike

“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.“

– Henry David Thoreau


2019 AT Thru-hike underway
Watch for big parties at our house.  Our adult children will be living there while we thru-hike the 2,191 mile (or so) Appalachian Trail.  Right now we expect this website to store words and images from our journey by foot, but maybe it will morph into a gallery of artifacts that documents the six-month party we missed.
