I couldn’t make this journey without the support of great people.

My friend and sponsor, Joe Raftis of europebound.com.  As of July of 2017 he was finishing his last few treatments battling Leukemia.  He has done 12 marathons and climbed the highest peaks on 5 continents and still going!

Extra special thanks to Michael Scott, an employee of Europe Bound at the time.  He has continued to advise and coach me through the process of gathering what I’ve needed for this hike.  Any hiking questions or products, I shoot him a text.  Good guy and friend who has been super helpful.
