This evening around 9:00 I received a spot from Zac showing he was about 200 feet from the border. Then, about 10 minutes later, I got another one that put him around 25 feet across into the Canadian wilderness. (49.00042,-120.80167) I have not spoken to him in a few days so I am not aware who he crossed with. I know he wanted to cross the border with so many of his friends he had met along the way. There are so many great people who endured the same hardships and joys. He received so much encouragement from people all over the country. Each one holds a special place in his heart and I am sure he wished that everyone could have stepped over the border with him. He started his journey back in April with so many hopes and prayers to go with him every step of the way. Thank you all for your support. Keep it coming. I can only imagine that when he did step into Canada he had each of you in the back of his mind, taking us with him to the end of this half of his journey. He carried us all in his heart. Good job Slim Jim!
