In honor of my friend Rick Towle,aka Attroll who with a few people that he met along the way, I took a trip today and summited Springer Mountain. On March 19th of this year Rick started his trek at Springer Mountain Ga and today on 10-10-10 he had plans of summiting Mount Katahdin. What an accomplishment for Rick. I can't imagine the feeling that he is having treking over 2100 miles and finally fullfilling his lifelong dream. I also had the privilege of hiking the last mile to Springer with 2 brothers who set out the 2nd week of June from Katahdin in Maine and joined them in their celebration of making it southbound to Springer in Georgia. Quite the feat!!! Way to go Rick!!!! We at GeocachingMaine are surely proud of your accomplishment and wish you the best in your next endeavors.
Here is a little montage of my trek to Springer Mountain Ga today.
Thanks for sharing your journal with all of us Rick and hope this will bring back some memories of your start although you will for sure
not forget your adventures. HAFFY
