OMG, Alice-Anne we have more in common than you think. I love how you express yourself and your insecurities, I was thinking the same thing about how I was going to fit in with all these professional, athletic, adventurous people but like you...as OUR page started bonding together...I feel the same as you, everyone is very kind & helpful & friendly. I'm a secretary/amateur photographer/girl Friday/office manager of myself because I'm the only one in the office. My husband Jay is disabled due to back problems and hasn't been able to work for the last 15 years so we have had our struggles and have learned to live on less but never doing without what we need. We haven't been out of Ohio on a vacation in 13 years so we are due. I would not have even thought of going anywhere had it not been for Tom & Atticus. I cried when I told Jay how privileged and honored I felt to be picked for this & I also told him I don't know why me but I'm thrilled beyond words that I am one of the "lucky ones". I think we will do fine and I'm not scared of not making it to the top because I plan to crawl if I have to...right behind Patricia who said she has been on all fours so you are more than welcome to crawl behind me or in front of me if need be but I don't think Tom is going to take us anywhere we can't go safely. I look forward to meeting you and getting to know you better! I really love your purple boots, the first pair I looked at were brown and PINK but they didn't have my size so my boots are boring compared to yours. It doesn't matter though because I feel so fortunate to be going at all. See you soon!!

This is awesome! You will have a great time on the hike, so glad you were chosen!

Alice-Anne, I can sense from what you and others have written that you are already part of a team ... each as Individuals but coming together as a Team to share the experience of a lifetime. The bonds you are forming and will continue to form during the hike will be priceless! All of Atti's Army will be with you in spirit whether you reach the summit or sit on a boulder and breathe in the fresh New Hampshire air! Have an awesome time!!

Hey Alice-Anne, LOVE the boots! I came across this quote from Wayne Dyer this morning, and thought it spoke to the members of this wonderful hike:

Choose to be in close proximity to people who are empowering, who appeal to your sense of connection to intention, who see the greatness in you, and who live a life that gives evidence that Spirit has found celebration through them.

Of course WE know to include, Atti and Will in that, too! Onwards, by ALL means, girl!

Best of luck to you and your fellow hikers. It'll be one of the great memories of your lives, I think.
