But most importantly:
My parents. The bread and butter of my being. Thank you for raising me to be who I am, for showing me the things in life that really matter. Thank you for helping me to dream my dreams.
You were, and are, my inspiration every step of the way. I love you very much.

Great to see you made it. We always wonder what happens to the ones who touch our lives and leave so quickly. Good luck in all you do.

The Crandalls, Murphy, Id

Hi Dash,

I'm an old friend of your mom's, from when we worked at Kenline Veterinary Clinic together. I didn't hear about your trek until it was over, via a Christmas card. I just wanted to say you are a very amazing person. Your introspection about life and yourself is beyond your years. It has been great reading your blog. I'm not quite finished, ready to start November. I did read ahead for when you reached the ocean. I'm just sorry I wasn't in on following your story from the first.
Pueblo, CO
