July 16 -Back on the Trail

I decided to continue my adventure in the AT. A rabbit escorted me out of Port Clinton and a deer encouraged me half way up the climb out of the town. I have not come to a good view yet, so I just took a shot of the trail where I am. The rocks and boulders challenged me earlier this morning but right now the trail is nice and calm. I am about 4 miles from my hotel and headed toward water at the first shelter I will pass today.

If I encounter some cool parts of the AT today I might try to post again this evening. Thank you all so much for praying and to those who commentated or sent me messages, I so appreciated your words of support!!

    Dave, when We read that you might have to quit the AT due to your injury, we stopped what we were doing and immediately prayed and asked God to touch you in a special way regarding your injury so that you could continue your Hike. So happy to hear that you feel better and can go on. Know we are praying much for you!

  11. We’ve been praying for you uncle Dave and will continue to! Chris knows someone who has been following you and they mentioned you are the only one left on the trail of the many they were following. Praying God continues to give you strength to finish your journey!

    • Thanks for your encouraging words. Lots of hikers have had to go off trail – some with injury, others run out of money, others just get tired of walking. Lots of great things ahead – I hope I can finish. God is faithful!

    Sure appreciate your blog & continuing to pray for your safe journey & return home!

    • Bill – thanks for the encouraging comment. “Home” is a special word right now in my heart. I am just taking the long way home.
