I just saw you posted about your upcoming hike on Trailjournals.com. My wife corresponded with you back in 2002 or 2003 about her Asthma and you gave her information regarding Chlamydia pneumoniae.
Thanks to you she is now completely better !!!
In 2008 I retired and we opened a hiker hostel in Manchester Center, VT. When you finally get north, please stay with us. See you down the trail,
