"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
Day 126, July 23 Life on the Trail I think Phil spent the night at the RPH Shelter at Mile 1428.8 on the Shenandoah Mountain NY. Less than 40 miles to get to Kent! Easy to say when you aren't hiking mountains and miles. Phil's plan is to come home Saturday with his 5 hiking friends, drive them back to the trail Monday a.m. before spending time at CCAR, and then hitting the trail again Tuesday afternoon.
