He Made It! Astro Andy finished the Pacific Crest Trail!

Mile 2668.  0 to go.  He’s done!

Astro Andy finished the Pacific Crest Trail on Saturday afternoon at 4:30 pm.  He was accompanied by his step-dad, Michael, trail-mate Gourmet (Marc) and new friend Dave.  We are decompressing now in Vancouver.  It’s been a whirlwind past four days . . . will send more as we unwind and settle in.

      WOO HOO AND GIANT CONGRATULATIONS!!! My heart leapt when I saw this posting! What an accomplishment!!! Your inspiration radiates outward, touching untold multitudes of souls!!! I am taking your sage advice with me as I take a journey to Vietnam next week–they will be the first thing written in my journal: “Take an adventure into the unknown .. ultimately the greatest healing lies in new things, opening yourself up to the power of spirit, the power of the universe, the power of nature.” Wow, what an amazing young man!!! Thank you.

  21. Molly says:

    That’s so awesome Andy! Whew, looks cold … glad you made it safely to the end! No frostbitten fingers or toes, I hope 😉

  22. Sumitra says:

    You should be in the dictionary under the word “determination”. I’m going to print out that amazing picture of you at the finish line for when I want to remember what “joy” and “follow-through” look like! I hope we’ll see you “back at the ranch”!

  23. Snow at the start, snow at the end, and so many adventures in between.
    Congratulations to you and your family!

    Thank you Andy for hiking the trail.
    Thanks to everyone helping you and to your family for keeping this blog.

    My diagnosis is (fingers crossed) less acute but yet completely unpredictable and uncurable and after fighting against the mental numbness, deciding that it’s not an option to slowly fade away, reading this has been most inspirational.

    I’m so happy that you did this and grateful for being able to read about it. Thank you.
