Met an extraordinary fellow

At Starbucks today I noticed a very fit fellow with pack and hiking poles and then noticed the banner on his pack that he’s hiking from NYC to LA to aid the Diabetes Association. We had a pleasant and interesting chat and Sterling is a delightful fellow and certain as positive as he portrays himself on his website.

A few more people like Sterling and this world would be a lot better place. I wish him the best on his trek across America. Having done some backpacking and general high energy exercise I can really appreciate how good he is at what he’s doing (and how hard it is) and the incredible efficiency he’s achieved with his gear and his plans.
