A Walk in the Woods


Congratulations to camp alumnus Eric Reithel, and his wife Laurel Edwards, for successfully completing a thru-hike of the Appalachian trail!

EricLaurelAT1Beginning in April, in Georgia, the couple pushed north, detouring only a few times.  Once, for a U2 concert at Madison Square Garden; another for the wedding of fifth-generation camp alumna Meaghan Swan.

Eric, part of an extended family that boast five Pok-O-MacCready alumni, was a counselor in the  2000’s.

Eric and Laurel met up with injuries, bears, and all varieties of weather prior to finishing atop Maine’s Mt. Katahdin on a gorgeous early September day.

Read all about their adventures from their online blog, which was updated throughout the trip.

Once again, on behalf of Pok-O-MacCready:  Great job Eric and Laurel!
