I wanted to take a brief moment to thank each of you for attending last night's send-off. It was great to see everyone gathered together again. I know that my comments didn't fully express how much I appreciate what this group has done for me. I came into the group completely unprepared to take on the challenge of the ADT. With just a few days before I depart I now feel confident that I'll be able to make the journey safely and relatively comfortably. I have each of you to thank for that. At one time or another, each of you has answered my countless questions, helped when you saw that I needed helping and generally grew my confidence like no other group I've ever been associated with. I look forward to starting my journey but I also look forward to the day that our paths join once again and we can sit around a camp fire and swap trail stories.
