MISSION ACCOMPLISHED: Christopher Howe has made it to Mapia
When I last saw Christopher Howe, he was chewing on a straw, shining a big shine and embarking on the final leg of his epic walk that started nearly three years and many 1,000s of miles ago in Los Angeles, California.
In the "short" distance left he would have to walk about 120 road miles to Boca da Acre, swim across a big river, and hike 70 miles through deep forest to arrive at his final destination of Mapia.
Now, word comes from our mutual friend Alexandre Lins that Chris made it safe and sound to Mapia and, for many of us, the words "Mission Accomplished" have taken on a new and very beautiful meaning.
As we anxiously await hearing a first-hand account from Chris, we send hugs, blessings and deep appreciation for his incredible journey.
