Hi Groton Elementary! It's 10am and we just started the Appalachian
Trail. I figured out how to use Mr DeVoe's camera timer while he got
a drink. We took a taxi to Amicalola Falls state park this morning.
The driver was a great guy who was originally from Africa. He came
here so his kids could get a good education. Mr DeVoe tried to explain
what hiking 2000 miles on the AT would be like. He could not imagine
it. When we parted ways he said, "I feel ok dropping you off here for
this trip because we are in America. If we were in Africa, this would
be a different kind of goodbye". See you all soon

Ps. Say hi to ms. Prentis for me

Hi Skoob,

Wow, I'm impressed, it didn't take you long to figure out how to use Mr. DeVoe's camera. Thank you so much for writing so soon. We will miss you back here at Groton Elementary.

Happy Hiking,
Ms. Prentiss

Hi Mr. Devoe! I wasn't sure if you would ever get underway. The weather certainly did not cooperate the last two days. First the canceled flight and then the bumpy ride. Hope the weather is a bit better in Georgia. Now if you were a 50+ year old, I could understand forgetting your poles. Thinking about doing a check list before setting out each day?????? Mrs. Filzen

Hi Skoob,

Are you enjoying your trip so far? Are you feeling scared or nervous about your trip? We are wondering if you went fishing yet and how you figured out how to use Mr. DeVoe's camera.

We all miss you.

PS. How is Mr. DeVoe and Kevin and Lucy doing?

Hi Skoob,

How are you doing? We miss you, Skoob. We have some questions for you. Did it rain yet? How do you like Lucy? Are you having a good trip so far? And how many more miles do you have to go?

Skoob,where are you guys? Have you been making the miles you wanted? Does Mr. Devoe sing? Can he sing?!? What's amazing that you've seen? Looking forward to hearing about it all.

I hope it's okay. I put your picture in the paper for tomorrow. I'll try to do a post each newspaper so tell Mr. Devoe, okay?

(And, if he's not a good singer, let it be. Sometimes I need to sing to pass the time and I know I can't sing either!)
