Life on the Trail... Phil is staying at Manasses Gap shelter tonight, Mile 980.1, after 2 nights in Front Royal, VA trying to get the swelling in his knee and bottoms of his feet in check. The humidity and heat was so thick today, he said it felt like he was walking through a sauna.

"Phil Valentine’s call to walk the Appalachian Trail is a vivid example of moving beyond recovery FROM life-threating illnesses as a means of recovering TO a life of extraordinary possibilities. Thousands of us who have shared the challenges and unexpected gifts from such recovery journeys will be walking in spirit with him.” ~Bill White, National Recovery Advocate
