Getting in Touch

Leaving tomorrow! And finally I have a rough schedule for you. The dates will certainly change and I will try to update them here. I believe at most stops I will have either cell service or wifi, so I will have some ability to read/respond to email, text, and Facebook communication.

Estimated excitement levels at receiving your letter

We also welcome physical correspondence! Post cards, letters, or parcels. Please let me know if you send something so I can tell the post office how many items I’m expecting. A text or email early enough that I can get it at the stop before would be ideal. Use USPS, not UPS or FedEx. It can take longer for mail to reach some of these little towns so something sent 1 week ahead of our ETA may not reach us (more for some classes of mail). Post offices only hold mail for 30 days so something sent 5 weeks ahead of our ETA could be sent back. I think 2 to 4 weeks ahead of our ETA is the safe zone.

  1. Morgan, I’ve been following your posts and wish you all the best luck in the world. Much love to you. You go, girl!


  2. Morgan- it’s finally time to GO. I wish you strength and happiness and interesting trail friends along the way! Can’t wait to hear your trail name. And if the going ever gets tough or you are lonesome , take deep breaths , read some Walt Whitman and know that all of us are out here loving you from afar!


  3. Morgan–I really enjoyed your posts. I am so excited for you and Louise. I grew up backpacking on the Appalachian Trial on family trips but NEVER anything like this. WOW–what an adventure! Love all your prep work and thoughts on entertaining your thoughts on the long journey.
