Georgia to Maine - - Please join me from start (4/1) to finish (8/10) - 132 days!!!!!

Bethlehem, NH
I have completed my thru-hike of the AT from Georgia to Maine; I started 4/1 and completed 8/10/10. I decided to do this thru-hike in memory of my brother Michael and in turn decided to turn it into a fundraiser. All money raised went to the Adaptive Sports Partners of the North Country which gives year-round opportunities in sports and recreation to people with physical or developmental disabilities. My wife Pam and I got involved with this program because it allows us to help people with disabilities enjoy the outdoors like we do and my brother Michael did. Michael was born mentally challenged, and he loved to visit us in the North Country of NH and go hiking. He also loved the outdoors and did many other sports. So, to help others do this and other outdoor activities is a TRIBUTE to him, and an HONOR to us. Many of you have helped me along my journey and donated (follow donation link) directly to a secure website. All donations have gone and WILL CONTINUE to go to ASPNC – nonprofit org to help assist others to hike, ski, kayak, snow shoe..etc… Thank you all in advance for your kindness & generosity, Dave & Pam Smith

Over Goal and Heading South

Hi All,
 Just a quick post this morning, but important one!! Friday night --thanks to a lot of great friends and help from my good friend Jack White and the Low Murphy Band.  We went well over the $5,000  goal I set!!!!!!
Now I can't wait to see how far over that goal we can go in the next 4 1/2 to 5 months that I will be gone! The ASPNC will put all the money raised to very good use.  It will be great to have new equipment of our own to use.
A special thanks to Laura White, Phil Katsaros, Jen Dupre, Michele Zangari and my lovely wife Pamela  for their help in the 50-50 raffle.  Also a special thanks to Mark the winner who donated back $100 of his winnings.
Well gotta go get ready to go to airport.

Talk later from Fla.
Dave (Smitty)
