Peggy (Thorson) Emil

I am one of many of your Dad's first cousins on the Anderson side. I found out about your Big Hike through the family tree. That would be Bernice Thorson, my Mom. By the way, she just returned from a week cruise in Alaska. I read this week's progress and will keep reading about your progress. I must say I am impressed. I hope Ryan is okay. If so, will he rejoin you? Good Luck, Peggy (Thorson) Emil Mandan, North Dakota

Just recieved the July issue of National Geographic Magazine. You are on page 26 climbing a 268 foot Koompassia excelsa tree(whatever that is). Very cool. Good luck on your journey.
I am the principal at Goodwillie Environmental School in the Forest Hills Public Schools District in Grand Rapids, MI.
Keep up the treck. I'll keep following along.
