The last 2 days have been full of driving and we watched as the landscape changed from plains, to a few trees, to lots of trees and green to hills and trees. So, there were trees. It really is gorgeous out here! We spent a lovely evening with Becca Friesen yesterday and she was so nice to let us crash at her place and feed us. Renee knows Becca from camper days.

Today we will meet with Christina and Russ in Comer and then get ready to start hiking tomorrow. TOMORROW?!?

Thanks for all your prayers and support. We are now at 7% of our fundraising goal. Keep it coming! 🙂

In our previous post we talked about sending us real letters instead of facebook messages or emails. Here is the address you can send them to:

Renee and Alison Neufeld
44760 283rd St
Hurley, SD 57036

Mom will send us the letters as she has room in our maildrops. Or you can send it to one of our 6 mail drops that are posted on our maildrops page. We look forward to hearing from you!

On to Neel’s Gap!

About Renee

I enjoy adventures. Whether running marathons, thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail, working with Service Adventure, or working with youth as Program Director of Swan Lake Christian Camp for 9 years, I have encountered many an adventure. On this site I will try to capture the big and small ones for you. Enjoy!

    Clark and I are keeping track of your travels. I printed out a map of the trail for him, and I’m watching your blogs. And of course, your Mom will keep us informed in Sunday School. Wishing you the very best as you begin this journey of a lifetime. We’ll be praying for your safety.

  2. Girls.. you’ve been on my mind a lot since Sunday. Hope the first day of hiking went well for you! According to your route you have another big day of hiking today. Hopefully the muscles aren’t too sore and the blisters aren’t too big. You got this girls! Am anxious for your first post out on the trail. Take care!!!

  3. We hope you can feel all the prayers & thoughts for you “girls” – sorry I know you’re young women, but you will always be “girls” to me! Missed you @ choir – just seemed so strange w/ both of you absent. I’m dying Easter eggs today – hoping to have both my parents & Ted’s parents over for Easter dinner. Just know that you two are an inspiration of creativity and goal setting! Anxious to see your first post. Love & prayers to you both.

  4. Today looks like your biggest mileage day so far. Hope you girls are doing good! On my mind all the time. Sending lots of positive thoughts & prayers your way!!! Hope the skunks and mice are staying away! 🙂 Excited to see pictures and your first post of your experience. Hope you are keeping a good journal and taking LOTS of pics!!!
