    How cool is that!! Is this article in the print edition, too? How did they get your picture?

    • I have spent the last2 hours trying to find a hard copy of USA Today without success. Oh well. I submitted a few photo to the ATC for possible inclusion in their Aventures Magazine. They must have provided the pic to USA Today. What a shock when RaceWalker emailed me with the news!

    Awesome! I also noticed the word “rowdy” in the text. ..how appropriate.

    • I was so surprised to get an email from RaceWalker telling me about the photo. I had no idea it was being published. If he had not mentioned it to me I would have missed it. What a thrill and a shock!

    Awesome, Dave!!!!! so proud to know you. FYI, why not try local hotels for a copy of USA Today. Usually when we travel, we stay at Hampton Inns, and there is usually a plethora of USA Todays!

    • Jan – I’ve read your idea a little too late today, but maybe I can check tomorrow morning. Thanks for the suggestion – I will let you know if I find a copy.

  4. You look good! Congrats!

    • Thanks, Mike. The wind on top of Washington puffed out my shirt and made my bicep look a little like Arnold. It was a glorious day on the summit.
