When news broke out about Osama bin Laden’s demise late Sunday night, I immediately though of my friends from DC, Adam and Susanna, who’ve taken three months off to hike up the Appalachian Trail. They were in cell phone range Sunday morning, but set off on the trail after having their first showers in a week. Adam is also a huge Capitals fan, and a passionate sports fan in general. He’s been known to destroy a cell phone in a blind fury, especially during the playoffs. I got this sudden pang of fear… did he destroy his new iPhone when they lost? Do they even know that could have just flown to Maine with adult sized hygene products and not walk all the way from Virginia? And then… Then this was found outside of Front Royal, VA*.
Be safe Adam and Susanna. Be safe.
*No it wasn’t.
