Back home for a family celebration

Saturday, October 13, 2012:

It was a day off the trail.  The family all got together to celebrate some birthdays at my brother's house in Delaware.  Good fun and conversation.

Here's my Mom and Dad.  They're pushing 90 (will turn 90 this February and April, respectively), and still doing well.  I'm hoping to hike the final short piece of Appalachian Trail with them at my side in a few weeks.  It's a blessing to have them around, period ... so to have them there, walking with me as I finish my 4368.4 mile odyssey will be an honor.  It will mean more to me than they know, and more than I can ever adequately express :-)
