Thank you for teaching me about all the trails in Pennsylvania. Thank you for building so many of them. Thank you for sharing with me your stories about hiking and building trails, and for inviting me to hike with you even if I had to stay at the registration table. I feel like I’ve gotten to know so many of you thanks to the membership drives, the data-processing, and constant emails. I have gotten to know a bunch of you, the ones who go to every hiking weekend, or at least every Prowl the Sproul. It has been a pleasure to work for Keystone Trails Association.
Brynn reached out to KTA before I knew I was leaving, and I saved her information because I was so impressed with her experience, her drive, and that she found KTA and applied for a job that didn’t exist. That’s gumption, and I think that’s a quality most at KTA share. She’s going to fit in well. Thanks to Joe’s guidance, and my confidence in her, this farewell is possible.
I am not going far. Starting at the end of February, I join the ATC MARO team as the Senior Office Manager (at the Appalachian Trail Conservancy’s Mid-Atlantic Regional Office), just down the road in Boiling Springs. It’s likely our paths will continue to cross, and I hope to see all of you down the trail.
Thank you again for all you do!
