Tecolote and Venado (aka my son Paul and his eight-year-old son Asher) headed out on March 9 to hike the length of the Appalachian Trail this year. They are within 100 miles of the 2200 mile trek to the finish on Maine's Mt. Katahdin. I wondered if Asher could do this--but he has become the driver of the adventure. Here's to you, Asher!!!
