My roommate Mat left this morning for West Virginia to get one last good night’s rest before the Afghan Girls Fund Charity Slog begins tomorrow. Once again, Mat and the rest are doing 200 miles in 10 days with nothing by the clothes on his back, a couple canteens and one tea bag. No food. No tent. No sleeping bag. The slog’s website will be updated throughout the next 10 days with pictures and updates from Madeleine Wiens, 13 year old daughter of one of the sloggers.
The picture on the right is Mat before he left today. I’ll have an ‘after’ pic when he gets back.
