a good walk

Hooray! Erick completed the final leg of his 2,175 mile hike! He had to wait for a few days because Mt Katahdin was closed due to severe snow and ice, and lack of water in the park. There were about 30 thru-hikers starting out with him (some even started illegally a bit earlier than 7am) but Erick was the first one to the summit. Awesome! His dad joined him for the very last part and he was the second one up. His mother posted 39 updates during the hike, whenever Erick would ring home, and I'm really going to miss hearing about his adventures. (Although I'm sure he'll go on having adventures, you don't stop after something like that.)

Edit: And I neglected to mention, Erick's the big brother of my Time Management Super Fairy!
