THE STORY:

For the second year I am a hiker in this event to raise money in support of the Veterans Leadership Program of Western Pennsylvania. This year I am planning to finish the event (only did 25 miles on day 1 last year). My training includes hiking the Rachel Carson Trail (at least twice) so i can do at least two consecutive hikes of 20 or more miles each day.

My buddy Trixi whose picture was taken last year at the 70 mile marker will be with me in memory. I will be hiking to honor my father who served in Europe during WWII, including the Battle of the Bulge where at one point he dove under the truck he was driving to avoid straffing aircraft only to realize the truck was hauling gasoline!

I am doing the easy lifting. Our veterans do the hard work of putting their lives on the line to protect and serve the United States of America. My participation and fundraising is my way of saluting them.
