Thanks everyone. Iíll pass on the offers and encouragement to her. Sheís been gone for a week and itís strange not to talk several times a day.

No, sheíll buy supplies as needed in towns along the trail. But I can always send something ahead of her to pick up at various places.

Yes, alone, but thru hikers sometimes find a friend to walk with. Sheís met several people who were great and gave her good advice. Two guys who run a hostel where she stayed one night were thru hikers and helped with her pack. It went from 30 lbs to 20 lbs. Big difference she said.

Not trying to pry but did she work in the elective surgery dept? My wife went back to work in elective surgery last week.
No, she was working for a company that specializes in preventing infections. Hospitals are not letting anyone in now.

When she did GA by herself, she took one. A 38. It wouldíve pissed off whatever she shot. No gun this time.

She met a bear on the second day. They saw each other and the bear ran.

You'd think that someone who specializes in preventing infections would be a good person to keep around right a bout now

This. David Paulides has investigated some very creepy disappearances over the last decade or so and the parks service puts up all kinds of roadblocks to his ability to get info on them. One of the things he stresses is to not go off alone without a locator beacon or whatever it's called: https://twitter.com/canammissing/status/1025900049379688448?lang=en

Color me impressed! Brave and motivated. What a goal!

Ignore the doom and gloomers. In Chinese itís considered not polite to curse an event with bad talk. They even gave a specific phrase.

She is gonna kick ass no matter what.

I didnít enjoy the click-bait thread title tho

This reminds me.

When my wife got laid off from commercial finance. She rallied. Never got down. Not even once. She took some prerequisite classes that were full, but she talked professors into “okay, just one more student”. She applied for nursing school which was impacted. She got accepted to two! She passed nursing school. She passed the board exam. She got a job! One hurdle after another hurdle cleared.

We tell Doreen this old lady that lived on the corner of our block all of this at our block party. She looks at me and says (with all seriousness), “OMG! She is gonna leave you for a Doctor!”


Hahaha. *****ing negative!

Aw hell no! Little known fact- In original script, rednecks were trying to steal Ned's "Dragonazz" Jeans. When they noticed how nicely the jeans sculpted Ned's rear- that's how the scene became what we know today.

We all can be a rung on the ladder. Might not be the top one right now, but hopefully she will come to her senses, and recognize you are the top rung.

It will get better, despite the loss of everything.
