To the first couple that gave us a ride in San Diego without us ever even sticking out our thumbs, we thank you.
To Girl Scout, who put us up for a night and made sure we got to the southern terminus, we thank you.
To Ziggy and the Bear and their foot baths, we thank you.
To the Saufleys and their well oiled machine of a trail angel stop, we thank you.
To Coppertone and his ice cream floats, we thank you.
To the Anderson's and their most generous hospitality and cooking, we thank you.
To Dianne, who gave us an epic RV hitch and beer on top of that, we thank you.
To anyone who ever gave us a hitch anywhere, we thank you.
To anyone who ever left us trail magic, we thank you.
Were even the most pessimistic or cynical of people to hike the PCT, even they would doubt that all the good from the world is gone. There are so many amazing people out there. I've been running into them every day for the past few months as I walk this footpath. The PCT can amount to an astounding adventure no matter how you do it, but I will never stop being thankful that we experienced the kindness and selflessness from so many different sources along the trail.
To anyone that has touched our lives in a positive way as we walk our way to Canada, you are all trail angels in your own way, and we thank you.
