Yay, it’s been three years. Hard to believe, but we made it. Not too many missed days, many miles and adventures later it has definitely been fun. Sometimes it has been taxing on resources, mainly sleep, to make sure these make it out there. I would not trade the experiences I have had for anything. Truly capturing memories for a lifetime.
Great Smoky Mountains National Park
The next few months will really stretch my abilities to juggle. Some of my family and I have decided to make a trek through the Great Smoky Mountains via the Appalachian trail. Not only am I having to train for 70 plus miles in 10 days, I have to make sure everything is in working order. Can’t miss the opportunity to enjoy the time and capture some more memories.

I think this was one of the easiest hikes that I have ever done. The entire trail is paved from the road to the falls. The only difficulty that a disabled person may have is at the falls themselves. There is a small foot bridge across the middle of the falls and a small step down. Other than that, an easy path to walk or take a wheel chair. Although I think having a paved path in the forest takes a little away from it, it is more than made up in the fact that wonders such as this can be visited by those less mobile.
Congratulations on three years Daryl. Your upcoming trek sounds like a lot of fun. It should provide some great opportunities for your next three years of posts!
