FINISHED

This morning, under gloomy overcast skies with a slight mist coming down, Abie and I crossed the border into Canada thus bringing to a close our CDT thru-hike. All I can say is WOOOOOHOOOOOO!

It rained all night so once again this morning we had to pack up a wet tent, but I could have cared less, I was going to be finishing today and finish I did. The hiking today was pretty much as expected, fairly easy but some sections of the trail were sure muddy.

My heart felt thanks goes out to everyone who has followed my journey. The prayers, well wishes and good vibes sent my way helped keep me going and for that I'm very thankful. To Kathy the Log Dog, a special thanks...she made a tough hike that much easier by providing logistical support par excellence. And of course, there is my family: my wife, daughter and parents were so supportive that it boggles my mind, thanks guys. A special thanks to my wonderful wife...I've never quite understood how she can let me go off on these crazy adventures of mine knowing the hardships she will face at home, but she does and I can't thank her enough....but I'll sure try.

For those interested, once I get a good wifi signal again, I'll add pictures to my posts that have been missing pictures. I believe those posts start with the one on 9/3. So check back in a few days and hopefully you'll see some more stunning pictures of Glacier National Park.

Cheers,

Disco
