LET US REMEMBER THE EVENTS OF
AND INSIST THAT OUR COUNTRY BE DETERMINED
OCCUR ON AMERICAN SOIL AGAIN.
Last year on 9-11 I was backpacking on the Blue Ridge Parkway
I completed a resupply on that date and purchased a new Tent.
I was a Seasonal Interpretive Park Ranger during the summers of 1974,1975,1976, and 1977 on the Blue Ridge Parkway. I just retired from 33 years of teaching Science in NC Public Schools. My goal is to Backpack the Blue Ridge Parkway from Jarman Gap in Shenandoah National Park to Milepost 469 in Cherokee, NC. I expect the hike to take ~40 days. This will bookend my 33 career as a Public School Teacher and allow me to place my career into perspective. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED- October 12, 2008
