I have great families. My first is my blood families, they are wonderful, kind, supportive and generally very good with my unconventionality. And yes, I’ve always been that way so thank goodness they are good with it.
Then there’s my “dirtbag family”, all my trail hiking buddies who have suffered the same trials and tribulations, joys and magic the trails provide. You are all awesome and I cannot thank you enough for the camaraderie. No one understands a thru hiker better than another thru hiker. See you out there!
