Most Thoughtful Gift Ever

Dear Reader, please meet the poster I’ve been looking for for years and I do mean, YEARS.


Back more than 5 years ago, I was in Damascus, VA with my Dad and we were looking around in a few of the really awesome hiking stores, I saw this poster.  For some reason (probably because I was being thrifty) I didn’t buy it, but it’s haunted me ever since then.

This is a picture of the end of the Appalachian Trail (if you’re going north bound) at Mt. Katahdin.  I honestly can’t tell you how many times I’ve looked for this poster online, but I couldn’t remember the name of it, so I’d google things like “hiker at mt. Katahdin”, “applachian trail hiker”, “hiker at the sign”, just random things thinking that one day I’d get lucky and find this poster for sale at which time I’d buy it for almost whatever amount of money it was being sold for.  Fast forward to today, my Dad and friend found this poster in Damascus last weekend, in a hiking store, in a corner, rolled up.

This was on my Dream List to find one day.  I can’t wait to get this frame.  By the way, those are puzzle pieces holding it out flat, it’s been curled up for a while….but it will soon be in the most awesome frame I can find and hung in a place of honor.
