I didn't want it to end!
Reviewed in the United States on November 6, 2018
I’ve followed Medicare Pastor’s journals for a long time and they are some of my favorites. A lot of books are just journals in book form and that’s okay. Not this one. This book is SO much more. Her stories are much more fleshed out and I enjoyed learning even more about her and her hikes than I knew before. I read it slowly and savored it. I felt like I was on trail and could see what she was seeing. It’s very well written and I didn’t want it to end!
I was honored to be mentioned. At the end of one year she was worried she wouldn’t be able to keep hiking. When I saw the next year that she was coming back to hike, I posted I was glad she was still able.
Mary is a huge inspiration to so many. When I see someone on a Facebook group question whether they can hike at an older age or with knee replacements I suggest they look her up. Her grit and determination are a great example of how to live, no matter our age or activity.
If you don’t know, Mary started seriously long distance hiking at age 60 and by her mid seventies she had hiked the Triple Crown--AT, PCT and CDT. Additionally, she has hiked two routes of the Camino in Europe and huge portions of the ADT, which crosses the U.S. east to west.
