Amazing TV News Story!

Hi Faithful Followers!

When Andy and I were in Yakima he was interviewed by the local TV station, but we thought it never made it on air because the Presidential debates seemed so much more important at the time.  Go figure.  Click this link (I hope it works).  The story did air on October 11th and we never even knew!

Thanks for following and all your love and support.  I’ve got a plane to catch . . . .

    A great inspiration for us all. If he can do all of this under the stress and attack from a deadly cancer, then we should be able to overcome our anger, and pain from our issues. He looks good and what a great story. He certainly isn’t wasting his life. Thanks for including me.

    Betsy, I am Shirley, one of the faithful followers met Astro at the Canada PCT yesterday. I took lots of pictures yesterday and think you might want to include some of them to your happy ending story. Please send your email address to so I can forward those pictures to you.

    Cannot wait to read one more wonderful article from you about Andy!

    It’s our honor to meet you, Andy and Team Astro yesterday at Manning Park!

    Good day,

    I would like permission to use the photo of Andy at the US/Canadian border in a blog post on my John Muir Trail blog. Such an inspiring story deserves attention. I can be reached at ray209 [at]
