This is a more detailed list of stops, mileage per day, and start times than we have had before. We have room for up to 8 walkers to do the whole trip, and up to 6 folks that can come out per day for “day walking”. This will be a fun trip, and especially since we have our good friends Jon Fish, Don Otis, and Kimberly Meyer Otis at Heritage Health Foods and Chris Thomas and The Chattanooga Market for feeding us, and Linda Rice at Blue Ridge Mountain Outfitters for looking after our feet and water supply! Things are coming together, this is going to be fun, come on out and enjoy the scenery of this beautiful State and help raise money to build The Commons!
Special thanks our good friend John Shackleford for being our official trip coordinator and crew boss! A huge thank you to my dear friend Robin Smith for helping coordinate fundraising and with Public Relations for this trip to Nashville. We have exceptional folks helping the Collegedale Tomorrow Foundation Inc. on this endeavor
