This is a story about starting in one place and ending in another. When military spouse Robin Bledsoe conceived the idea of making 203 hikes in Virginia's Appalachian mountains to honor the 203 soldiers from her state who had fallen in the line of duty since September 11, 2001, she had no idea the impact this undertaking would have on her life. Beginning as a novice hiker and unprepared for what awaited her, Bledsoe matured into a seasoned, prepared and enthusiastic hiker. She met many people who became integral parts of her life, and she had unforgettable adventures on the trails. More importantly, however, she deepened her sense of gratitude for the freedoms these fallen heroes fought and died to protect. What started as a way to honor these brave men and women became a life-changing and life-enriching experience for Bledsoe, and her lively account of these hikes allows us to experience these adventures with her.
