Katahdin SummitThey made it!
On Monday morning, September 27 1999, at 10 a.m., Every Hiker's Dream and RickRock reached the summit of Mt. Katahdin. In 174 days, they walked at least 2,160 miles and climbed 180 named mountains and countless hills. Along the way, RickRock lost his sandals and nearly 25 pounds. Dick lost a shirt and 48 pounds. Both found that fulfilling a dream is not easy-but is worth the effort. CLICK HERE to follow the trail!

Check the small booklist accumulated by various inspirations both on the walk (the hard work!) and the making of the website (the easy bit!). http://www.dicktakesahike/bookstore.htm
