We just returned from a great weekend trip to attend the Appalachian Trail Museum’s Hall of Fame banquet.
Although John has made the walking sticks for the Hall of Fame’s inductees since its inception in 2011 – and helped lug some ancient equipment out of the old grist mill that became the museum – he had never made the trek up for the actual event.
Everyone was thrilled to see John in attendance and, much to his complete surprise, he was recognized with a beautiful certificate and warm applause for his artistic efforts over the years.
It’s true that John lives without electricity and sans computer, but he asked that I help him create a site where he could show his work, as well as photos of his beloved AT (coming soon!). We both hope you enjoy this new site.
