Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Dennis Blanchard's promise to his brother haunted him for over forty years. Finally, when there were no more excuses, he set out on the Appalachian Trail to fulfill that promise. As he walked the trail, Dennis reconnected with the Norman Rockwell America that seems lost and forgotten. He learned that not only are the difficulties of walking over 2,200 miles easily underestimated but that trouble can begin long before setting a first step on the trail. Blanchard's humorous introspective demonstrates that bears, rattlesnakes and challenging terrain may be far less formidable than some of life's more subtle dangers.
Alan Roddy, President, Appalachian Trail Club of Florida:
"Dennis tells us a quirky but endearing and ultimately inspiring tale, about not only the daily challenges that the Appalachian Trail throws down for hikers, but also the unexpected challenges of a life-threatening heart condition, and how he overcame both with the same persistence and positive outlook.  Along the way we find out just what to do when a bear visits us in the shower.  "
Grace Tyner, Mountain Marching Mommas:
End-to-end Appalachian Trail hiker K1YPP Dennis Blanchard, a real ham, never had to use that SOS signal in spite of daunting medical problems.  But he did contact many radio operators using his homemade radio (Dennis is this right? fragrantly stored in a mint tin. No cell phones for this electronics engineer who was often mistaken for Santa Claus minus the little round belly - he was always hungry!   
This was no "walk in the woods." Dennis tells of his many encounters with wild life on his 2,175 mile hike - even with exciting "bare" facts. What a page turner, especially if you are a hiker, but entertaining and educational for all.  Just makes you want to put on those boots to experience again the hike of a lifetime.
