Onto Rocksylvania

We spent 3 wonderful zeros at my parents’ … Saw lots of friends and took care of all our bizness.


Of course, the last 3 days were gorgeous … In the 70s, low humidity. Today, torrential downpouring. Thank you Mother Nature.

Anywho, we are hitting the trail. I am not excited at all to hike the 230+ miles of Pennsylvania. Why, you ask? Of the 450+ NOBOs we passed, 449 were negative about PA. Here’s what they have been saying …
-the rocks in PA suck
-there are tons of snakes
-the rocks of PA will make you cry
-there are no views in PA
-have you heard about PA’s rocks
-many of the water sources are dry (how is this any different than NJ or NY?)
-there are rocks in PA that will ruin your feet (our feet are already ruined)

Sounds awesome, right?

Anyways, I can’t thank BOTH my parents enough (my dad gets upset because he thinks my mom gets more attention on the blog, yet he doesn’t want to have a “presence” on the Internet). They waited on us hand and foot and fed us well (we both gained 5 lbs back!). Plus, they are taking extremely good care of Mr. McKinley (he has also gained weight since living with them). So thanks Short on Coffee & Big on Lotto! We love you!

    There are *some* views in PA! Stop and take a second to see some of them! 🙂 And the rocks will just be a nuisance, but you will have had a taste of them in NJ anyway.

    PA isn't that bad, the southern half is easy.

    I see that you are ahead of the post office drop schedule. Your scrappin' friends would like to send out a package that we are getting together next week (august 23). Where should we send it?

    From the Garden State to the Rocky State . . .Since you two are weeks ahead of schedule, maybe you can take your time thru PA. I'm in awe of you!
