    VIDEO:Meet the General

    Great hike and video! Will The General be coming with you to the NEHHA? Will be fun to meet him and all the kids! Planning some activities for them already!

    ===> Great! My daughter was a Camp CIT, and her roommate was an Audubon Camp Counselor. Will be plenty of fun stuff to do, and extra eyes on all the kids.

    The best part of this vid was how thrilled your son was to be out there. My boys love it too and I hope to get them out soon. Thanks for posting!

    Great video and post. He is all boy and no quit.

    My boy and I did a similar trip last month and are already working on a repeat with a friend and his dad (making converts to hammocks as we go). Looks like we're doing at least one a month through the end of the year.

    Working our way up to three months on the AT when he graduates highschool (in about 6 years).

    No wound? No scar?
    Yet, as the Master shall the servant be,
    And piercd are the feet that follow Me.
    But thine are whole; can he have followed far
    Who hast no wound or scar?

    Excerpt from a poem by Amy Carmichael
    Missionary to orphans in India.
    She suffered much -- and bore much eternal fruit.

    There are Crock Pots and there are Microwaves. The world does microwaves; God does crock pots.

    The only way outdoors can be more satisfying is when you share the wonder with the next generation.

    Best wishes to many more miles and smiles together. Thanks for sharing it with us. Brought back memories...
