My son and daughter-in-law starting their hike on the Appalachian Trail. They plan to hike north from Harper's Ferry WV for about 6 weeks or so, hoping to make it to New York State.
We took them to Harper's Ferry and hiked about a mile with them this morning (May 21, 2008). Then they went on while we went back (to the car). We are now in Kill Devil Hills, NC, which is on the Outer Banks.
