  1. Peter, Stumbled upon you through Trail Journals. Impressive — website and informative entries, purposefulness, and personal dedication. Things that all bode well for your hike! Best wishes for a Maine Moment.

  2. Peter, Just finished my letters to the Park Superintendent and Landscape Architect, and will forward copies to the Congressman and Friends of the Smokies. I went to school with Lamar Alexander, TN Senator. Should I send a copy to him? Couldn’t hurt. I also mailed off a donation for Shuckstack to FFLA.
    I thought about you yesterday as the weather was gross here. I’m sure it was bad at Springer Mt. Hang tough…long way to go. Godspeed. Bill

  3. Hi Peter,

    I just read your first post. It must have been so hard to leave Allison. It will take no time for you to start to make friends. Those on the A.T. form one big moving community. Happy Trails.

  4. Great job on both your hike and rasing of funds
    for the tower. Looks like we had a reverse of
    weather last month. We were in the high 60s in
    Wyoming, but you however, were freezing your
    — off. Anyway, atlest it seems you missed the
    tornados between Nc and TN last month. All the
    best and we’ll keep intouch.


  5. I am really enjoying precariously your journey, both personally and for CMC. I talk to many people, both at Diamond Brand and on club hikes and they are all interested in what you are doing. You seem to be very efficient about your hiking. I look forward to reading more.

  6. Hey Peter – congrats on making the halfway point. (You’re definitely on my “Fantasy Hiker” team.) Keep living the dream for the rest of us, and best of luck with Shuckstack.
