Here we are at the Southern Terminus of the Appalachian Trail —  Springer Mountain, Georgia.  Fred’s Navy buddy Perry and his wife Dee Dee drove us up here this morning – March 25th – not coincidentally, Fred’s 62nd birthday.  We all hiked up to the top of the mountain where Fred – er, Santiago – signed in to make his thru-hike official.  With this ritual complete, we said our goodbyes at the parking lot and sent Santiago off!
