    Thank you so much Walt! The heat and a rough week at work did me in. Hope to do a few more bridges when you repeat the hike in October.

    Finally made it across all the bridges !. My feet are having an ongoing argument about it with me, but my mind is thrilled. What a lovely bunch of people to meet on the walk, and a salute to those of you who made it all the way !. The view from the GWB was a spectacular end to it all. Thanks Walt and Maurice.

    I second that James. Thank you Walter! Maybe I'll survive the full walk next time but I really enjoyed the 6 bridges that I made it through this time around!
