Spreading cheer and encouragement along the way!!
Today's guests were known as the Praise Team on the trail, with the purpose of "spreading cheer" on the trail.
As committed Christians, Ken and Allie Dravis saw their hike as an opportunity to encourage and learn about their fellow travelers, offering support and encouragement as they went along.
Ken wrote a book following their hike, and that is to be released shortly. When I get back from the UK, I'll let you all have the link.
Also today, Trumpet, or Dan Whitesides and his awesome dog, FrankE are getting ready to drive across country to Georgia and the beginning of their hike. They're doing a shakedown hike on the Bartram Trail first. I recorded Trumpet on March the 1st, so he'll be well on his way when you hear this.
