From Springer Mountain, Georgia to Katahdin, Maine, we walked. We walked through snow, ice, rain, searing heat, sharp rocks, dangerously steep climbs, and rushing waters. We walked for hours and hours, days on end, week after week, and many months. We walked. We walked to be free. To live. To experience a life that we had never known. It was hard, but the difficultly quickly became the norm and the old normal became dull as we began a new grand adventure. Every day was a step North and a step into the unknown.
The unknown should not be feared; rather, it should be embraced, as the unknown is the basis for adventure.
