Walkabout Talk About  
Stick Participant Stories 

YIPPIE!!! The 1st PARTICIPANT SUBMISSION IS HERE
 

ALI, THE FIRST HIKER TO MAKE A SUBMISSION  DONATED A KIDNEY TO A FRIEND...

AND SHE'S GOT COOL RED KICKS THAT MATCH THE STICK!

Here's Ali's Submission:  

Hi there! 

I just moved to North Wales about 3 months ago, and this was my first hike in this area. What a fun surprise to have this walking stick sitting at the trail head! And even better that I could take some photos throughout my hike while wearing my KDA shirt as well! I donated my kidney to a friend from college about 6 years ago :) 

 

Thanks again for this fun project! I'm attaching a few photos from my hike, just trying to pass along some good vibes and an attitude of gratitude! 

 

Thanks again!

MANY THANKS TO KAREN AND TANK FOR WALKING, TALKING AND GORGEOUS PICTURE TAKING ON THE TRAIL!

Here's Karen's Submission:

Hello! 

 

My dog and I found your walking stick at the Central PV Park and took it with us back to the Graterford Trailhead (near PA Live Steamers). On the way, we met a lot of people who said Hi, and one man asked if that was my dog's stick, to which I replied yes, but I had to carry it for him. We actually took the stick down towards the skippack trail, near the power lines before we got back to our car. 

 

Anyhow, here's some pics from our adventures! 

 

Best, 

Karen and Tank

SUBMISSION # 4 IS HERE!
 

THANKS SO MUCH TO CECILY AND HER FAMILY - FOR TAKING TIME TO HIKE WITH THE "BLACK BIRD SINGING STICK" AT VALLEY FORGE !

Here's Cecily's Submission:

 

Me, my mom, and boyfriend found number ten walkabout talkabout stick! We hiked for awhile with it and looked it over and noticed it was based off of Black Bird by the Beatles and that was the song we played for my dad’s funeral. It felt like a sign from my dad and it was such a coincidence because yesterday was my aunts memorial and she loved to sing and it felt good to find it. We really appreciate you doing this and I cant wait to find more!! 

Cecily
