Standing Bear on the AT - July 3, 2012

I don't blame Mike, aka Standing Bear, for whooping it up!!  He has just passed 1500 miles on the AT, passed through 11 states and is making tracks in Massachusetts.  Way to go Mike!

If you're not familiar with Mike's journey, please check out his blog to read all about it.  It will be well worth your time.

He also has a FB page with more photos and notes.

Mike has an incredible spirit and an amazing drive.  He is inspiring to me because of what he's doing and because of what he has overcome.  It's not often in life that people can overcome childhood mistreatment and have such an open heart and ability to love.  I think Mike has all that and more.  Please visit his Hike4Kids page and consider making a donation to his cause.

  1. He should be celebrating! He has made an incredible journey, and it is so very inspiring. He has also lost a lot of weight on this journey! What a way to get fit!

  2. I'm really getting into this series! Way to go!
