15 Minutes

Yesterday Lauren and I appeared in her hometown newspaper, The Gloucester County Times. The columnist, Bob Shyrock, heard about our trip from friends (Jack and Jean) who have been faithful followers of our trip blog.

Bob regularly highlights local people and places and gave us a call last week. Our phone interview lasted about 45 minutes and we thought he did a nice job composing the article.

Our only footnotes would be that we slept mostly under our tarp on the trail, not in shelters - and that my sister Hannah is actually 9-years-old. But overall... very accurate!

You can find the article here, if you want to take a look.


  1. Hey! I read the article online! Congratulations you guys! We're so proud of you! Heard the November 10th thing is cancelled! We're soooo disappointed! We were looking forward to seeing you both and learning more about your trip! Will you be around for Christmas this year by any chance?!? Anyway, miss you!

  2. Wow, that is really cool! I like the article - you had such a huge, and wonderful experience... I'm so glad you got the opportunity to share it others in this way!

  3. i have enjoyed reading about your adventures. thanks for sharing your life with us in this way.
