Thank you 'Strider' for the comprehensive documentation on the trail. I have section hiked several of the national trails and plan to do this one in 2017. Bless you in your future hikes and be safe!

I enjoyed your utube interview with Passages, thanks for sharing your input! I'm from the U.P. and have recently started section hiking the NCT!

Strider: I really enjoy reviewing your photos. I have never visited this trail. Would you give me permission to use one of your photos on my blog dedicated to long distance hiking trails? I'd like to use your photo for the North Country Trail webpage. If you give me permission, I'll give you full credit. Under the photo, I would included the words "Photo: http://www.stridernct.com/Photos.php" with a backlink to your webpage. Thanks for your consideration. -- Jeff

Just found your journal and started reading it. I'm looking at this thru hike for 4 or 5 years from now. I have to finish the last 1000 miles of the AT first. I got 1200 miles NOBO completed before home finances required me to end my thru hike half way thru.. Looking forward to reading your journal and finding out more about this trail. At 60 years of age the AT was at times challenging but was a great adventure and I met many wonderful people. It will be interesting to compare the types of trail magic on the NCT vs AT. There are so many people,churches and local hikers who spoil the AT hikers in the southern 500 miles but it was great. As I get closer to setting my date I will drop you a line and maybe see you out on the trail. Happy and safe trails to you. Mike Sauter (enigma) AT 2015 section hiker.

Hi Luke. I just started reading your journal. Since I live in Michigan, I started reading there. I am really enjoying your journal. Being the husband of a working wife and father of 4 boys there is not much time for me to run off and live on a trail. Sounds very rewarding though. Due to an upcoming layoff at work myself and a couple friends are going to spend a few days walking the trail somewhere in the UP in May. After reading your journal I am really looking forward to the hike with friends.

I live in Central Wisconsin, my son and I are talking about a section hiking of the NCT, Duluth to Mackinaw City. Your journal entries regarding some of the trouble sections there will help make the trip easier. I have been to many of the scenic attractions along the way, however your photos have inspired me to see all in between. Thank you for the detailed notes.

You are an inspiration to me dude! I am planning on hiking the Appalachian Trail some day just like Granny Gatewood did many years ago. If she can do it, so can I! Nothing better than being out in the woods and exploring. There is much peace and joy in the woods. I hope to see you at the Adventure Summit at Wright State University.

Your trek was truly impressive. I intend on thru hiking the NCT. Could you send me the list of maps and guide books you used? There are so many segment maps and different groups who have different areas covered it is a bit confusing.

Just learned this trail goes right through my town in southern MI, Marshall, and I've contacted the city about doing what we can to support it and advertise. Inspired by your trek! Belated congratulations.

Our paths crossed at a park/trail shelter in New Breman, OH during my walk across America. I over-nighted there, but with a few remaining hours of daylight left you pushed on. What a great accomplishment. Something you'll never forget. A rare experience that only you can carry through the great walk-of-life. Congrats my kindred spirit friend.

Luke, I was so glad to meet you at the Midwest Mountaineering Winter Expo dinner on Saturday night. Thank you for having the blog and I really look forward to reading even more details of your adventure when I get to buy your book next year. I always tell people our lives are only as interesting as the stories we have to tell. I must say you have quite the story to tell. Congrats on completing such an aggressive endeavor! Brent Beal

Luke, Think of you often and wonder how you're getting along. Working on the book? Do keep in touch, dear friend! God Bless, Nimblewill

Was able to interview Luke for a story with a paper I worked for. Read the story here: http://tonyjwittkowski.wordpress.com/2014/05/30/luke-jordan-a-journeyman-on-a-mission/
