Market St. Georgetown, DE (302) 855-9367 Discovery Continued from page 27 loaded the official trail guide from the Discovery Trail Web site and with his canine pal, Cody, will be the group's guide as they trek across the back-country route to the West Coast. Czaplicki, who decided to forego his post-gradu- ate college work for a try at the trail challenge, said he is seeking "some self-fulfillment and a chance to figure out what I really want to do with my life." "I'm looking for adventure and peace of mind from this experi- ence," said 23-year-old Tim Macarak' who rounds out the threesome. "But I think we could have done a little more prepara- tion as far as the walking goes. It's going to be rugged for the first few weeks, I'm afraid." By nightfall, the group had walked 12 blistering miles in a 100-degree heat index, been drenched by a late afternoon thun- derstorm and pitched their tents in the wet grasses along Beaverdam Creek northeast of Harbeson. Price said he ate dinner in the rain along the creek's edge and watched a big snapping turtle moving about the shallows. Macarak wrapped his blistered feet with tape and wondered how he could I!ghten his 65-pound load. "Unfortunately, I packed enough dried food to last me a month," he explained. "I should have thought that through a little better. Right now, all I want to do is get rid of it somehow." As the hikers endured the pounding thunderstorm just be- fore dark Monday evening, get- ting totally soaked and waiting for a chance to pitch their tents and rest their weary feet, they were jolted upright by the crash of a huge tree branch which fell next to their campsite. "At that point, it was almost like God sending us a message saying: 'You boys aren't going to make it easily,'" said Price. "But we're still determined, and I believe we'll make" " It., Czaplicki agreed: "We'll make it; we just had a tremendously tough first day, a real initiation," he said. "My only fears now are of the mountain hiking that awaits us farther west and the porcupines that await Cody." Hefting their huge packs for the second day, the group walked off in high spirits toward Redden State Forest where they planned to spend their second night. Ah'eady, they were heartened from all the honks and waves offered them by passing motorists. "A nice man on Route 9 gave us an official Sussex County map with all the roads," said Czaplicki. "It looks like we'll have some dirt roads ahead of us in Delaware, and that will be great relief for our feet." The group expected to reach the Delaware-Maryland border late Wednesday or early Thursday, putting the First State behind them. "This will be the only state we'll be able to walk in three days," Price said. "Some wil!ke us three weeks." :'*,.r "T" le Philosophy A Unique, Comfortable Clothing Boutique ANN ].00,ATEMAN LTD.
