    There was a lady at the Ruck this year who called herself the Queen Mother, or something like that, who was planning to hike with a bunch of her kids. I wonder if this is her and her kids.
    If not NOW, then WHEN?

    I don't believe they are the same. Queen Mother lives in Northern Florida and not Louisiana. She has 5 children not 6 - the youngest of which is age 3. I don't believe any are autistic.

    details? close enough.
    Dogs are excellent judges of character, this fact goes a long way toward explaining why some people don't like being around them.

    I think you're correct. This mom actually has SEVEN (all her biological children) the 18 yr old is home with Dad in Louisiana...

    I do not think they are the same. Queen Mother started in July; no autistic children. IMO 3 years old is a little young to hike 10+ miles daily for 6 months. It would be different if two parents only had the one child and could carry her. As it is, I would bet that some of her children are having to carry the youngest at times.

    This is the Care Bear Family...I met them in the shelter just prior to Suches going north. The mother cooked for them all, they were to go 500 miles...Retrieving Mail drops the entire way and was told the father was home working...I saw them on May 25th...Talked with the oldest boy, 15. He said they were all homeschooled and going to Virginia...One boys shoe was already worn down to the nub.They were all in good spirits and very polite, and tent camping.I was immediately impressed with the motehr being the leader of the pack. They were hiking at a very good pace also...I will never forget them.
