George Cared Deeply
Gerry’s husband wasn’t happy because she had a back injury, and the trek might be too strenuous. Still, he could do nothing more than support her ambitions, and they came up with a plan to make things easier for her. George wasn’t participating, but he agreed to drive to various checkpoints to give her supplies.
Slow and Steady
Gerry and her friend, Jane Lee, set out for the adventure on April 23, 2013. Calling herself inchworm because of her slow pace, she carried a journal. The two ladies started in the middle, making their way up north, and Gerry couldn’t have been happier.
