The Long Way Home…

100_4498This is Mark and Maggie.  In the summer of 2013, they tested their perseverance, their strength, and their relationship against the formidable Appalachian Trail.  Their goal was to see more of America, meet people, and hike the complete 2,189 miles without breaking up.

Against all odds they made it, validating the speculations of at least three friends.  On October 9th, 2013, after knee issues, Norovirus, and a lot of rain, they summited Mt. Katahdin amid a new community of hikers.  This blog chronicles the harrowing, embarrassing, and hopefully inspirational stories they collected during their journey.
