  1. MY sister from another mister, my best friends’ sister, my dear friend…. I will be following diligently. I sincerely hope you find whatever you seek on this journey. Youve inspired me to attempt my first multi-day hike this summer.. who know i might even catch you and we can walk together… (i will be tracking to see if that is a possibility when you hit MA). GOOD LUCK
