    What a ride! Huge congratulations on an amazing life journey. We are gonna miss your posts. If you manage that lottery thing we want pictures of your Sherpa. Thanks again for letting us tag along. Beth and Bernie.

    • You need to give out Sherpas with your trail magic!

      I’m going to miss your pixels. You guys were one of the highlights of my whole hike!

    Congratulations Karma. It has been so wonderful to follow along. I’m gonna miss you on the trail. Surely you will write more. Please write more. I want to know what you felt. What was it like walking up to the Consevancy? What were you thinking. Please write. more. Write a book. You write so well. You have a unique way of injecting humor with seriousness. I think you could have a book better than Bryson. Again, from the bottom of my heart, congratulations!. You have touched my inner soul more than you will ever know. Thank you for that. I only wish we could have met. Maybe one day we will.
    Sincerely and with respect,.

    You came, you saw, you conquered! Robert Earl Keen’s song says “the road goes on forever and the party never ends”. You are a part of the AT and the AT is forever a part of you. thanks for sharing the road and the party.
