My Hiking Partners

I could not have completed my Epic Hike without a lot of help from my friends and family. Thank you to the following forty-five (!) people who hiked with me:

With Ted Kellogg (trail name Wombat) on Day 1 near Mt. Greylock, Massachusetts
Matthieu and Didier Collin de Casaubon (ok, so I’m not with them but that was my fault and not theirs!)
With Ted and Didier (aka Otter) in Vermont
With Josh and Kate Reynolds and my wife Eileen in Vermont
With Steve Delaney and Walter Scully, crossing the Connecticut River, from VT into NH
With Jay Weed (“Batwing”) enjoying maple bacon donuts in NH.  Wombat is with us.
