"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
Life on the Trail... Thanks to all the encouragement and prayers, Phil had a better day yesterday and enjoyed the hike up Mt. Greylock. He camped at Wilbur Clearing Shelter at Mile 1589.6. Today he will see the 1600 mile mark, but what is exciting is - as of last night he has just under 600 (599.6 to be exact) miles to go.
