Looking at the map and seeing this makes me feel good. Actually being able to see progress is so cool.
Although I have hiked and traveled a lot this is by far the craziest thing I have ever attempted and I am still learning so much everyday. Packing and re-packing my stuff on a daily basis trying to find the best fits, and figuring out what I need and what I have been carrying and not using.
After 42 days I decided that not only is my pack too big for what I am doing it is just heavy and bulky and I am not as much of a fan of it as I thought I was. I think it takes a good amount of time using something to really realize that type of thing.
So as I re-pack and get rid of the excess I am also now back looking for a new ultra light, smaller bag.
So proud of Courtnay. Follow his adventure! Donate! Spread the word!!!

Today I passed through Danville and when I met up with Jerry we did a little interview with Heather Rosenbaum for ABC13. Thanks to Heather for spending some time in her busy day with us.

Had the pleasure of meeting with Jerry Walter today. Jerry is the founder of the National Fabry Disease Foundation http://www.fabrydisease.org/ . He met me in Danville where we were met by abc news 13. After a short interview we had lunch and got to talk about my trip and Fabrys in general. Jerry is one of the most informative people I have met on the subject and I got a lot out of the afternoon. Thanks for everything Jerry.
