    This untimely succession of winter storms, barreling across the northern states one after the other, has me saying prayers each day for Fronkey and Tala's safety. We're all rootin' for ya Fronkey! Stay safe!

    Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
    The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy,
    while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn."

    Been keeping on eye on this thread since it started. Good to hear you are getting close Fronkey! Quite an accomplishment, can't imagine pulling those kind of miles in the snow. Keep safe and roll on man! (and pup)

    Cheers

    We're really not getting hammered up here. The weather certainly hasn't been unusual for this time of year.

    Maybe I'm jaded being that I live in the area, but this has actually been a pretty tame winter.

    That does not in any way lessen Fronkey's accomplishment, mind you. Just stating the facts so most people realize he was likely very prepared for what's going on weather-wise.

    Keep pushing, Fronkey!

    Here's the latest!

    Fronkey and Tala successfully FINISHED THE NORTHBOUND SHT thru-hike today, the first ever thru-hike on snowshoes (so far as I know). He's on his way home and will doubtless post some more thorough updates when he gets a moment.
