    Default Congratulations, Godzilla!

    Just letting everyone know that my boyfriend Erik - trail name Godzilla - summited Springer on Saturday to complete his SOBO thru hike!!! He says hello to all his trail friends and town friends. I greeted him with a champagne toast in the parking lot.

    I was only able to take off for 2 months, so I joined Godzilla the first 500 miles, Katahdin to Rutland VT. Hello to anyone I met as well, my trail name was MacGyver. We met a couple of Whiteblaze NOBOs in NH. Peanut and Wrongway come to mind but I know there were more. Erik spent some time hiking with One Gallon, who is finishing his triple triple crown. Don't know if he's on WB.

    Congrats, Godzilla!!

    Default Congratulations Godzilla!

    I met you two at Towns Inn in Harper's Ferry and then Godzilla by himself at the Ensign Shelter on Oct. 3rd. I gave him some cold pizza for breakfast. I am very impressed with SOBO's finishing the trail at this time of the year. Have a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year! Bama

    So it isn't only King Kong who has met his true love.

    Congrats to the rambunctious reptile!

    Just found this thread... congrats to Godzilla (I knew he'd do it!) and MacGyver hope all is good in the Navy. Grizzly when did you change your name on Whiteblaze, I wouldn't have known it was you if you hadn't signed Grizzly. I'll never forget Katahdin with you guys!

    Congratulations Godzilla!

    I don't know if you remember me, but we pretty much made out every single night in Maine (sorry to break it to you MacGyver!)

    I finished on the 15th with a bunch of others. I miss it so much I'm going on the PCT next year with BooBoo!
