Here’s the track of Joe’s flight home, courtesy of Dan and Elizabeth Page (NCSSM ’82). They were able to fly him over a large portion of the Appalachian Trail on their way back to Durham, NC. It took Joe 6 months and 7 days (191 days) to reach the end of his hike, and 6.5 hours to get back home :-)
