Please keep following my blog. I promise to update with pictures and add some missing details. Hey, how about a virtual party?  I know I would have quit along time ago if I could do so quietly. But with your unwavering support, I just couldn’t and I am eternally grateful.

    1. A friend of mine taped a presentation I did back in the Fall and recently edited it so I could post it on After going to the website, just search for Andy Davidson thru hiking thru life and you should get the 3 parts. The total presentation lasts about an hour. Hopefully it will make you laugh and think. Since I last wrote, I have to say I really miss the trail and miss conversing with y’all even more. I’ve been working on another project which I hope to announce in the near future. Until then I have dreams of jumping in the truck with Lor and Belle (our Springer Spaniel) and back packing out West this summer. (Just don’t tell my employer).

      Take care, “Phantom”

  7. Dear Andy,
    Congratulations!! I’m so inspired by you. I started school about a week ago and all I could think of was that you finished. You have really been a good influence even though we only met once and only talked over blogs. I’m thinking about writing a narrative piece on my hike and hoped I could include you in it. I have always wanted to thru hike the Appalachian trail, and you are just one more reason I want to. I am so happy I ran into you and followed your blog. May God bless you the rest of your life.


  8. Andy, after hearing you speak at church tonight I came home and looked at this last blog/video again, and all I can say is God has ‘brung’ you a long way, and will see you safely HOME! Thanks for letting us take the trip with you : ) Love and Blessings! j
