Strayed's best friend Aimee sends her provisions to stops along the trail, including letters that congratulate her on her progress. Strayed also receives letters from her ex-husband Paul along the way. On the morning of Day 58, Strayed is out of water and desperately licks the dew off her tent.
Dehydrated and near exhaustion, she siphons water from a muddy puddle. While she waits for her water to disinfect, two hunters approach, one making suggestive remarks that leave Strayed feeling threatened and vulnerable. This causes her to quickly leave and run away. Strayed makes her way out of California and arrives in Ashland, Oregonwhere she meets a man named Jonathan Michiel Huismanwith whom she attends a tribute concert to Jerry Garcia and later spends the night.
Days later, Strayed arrives at Mount Hood National Forest and encounters a friendly group of young hikers who share their experiences. The hikers recognize her from the signatures she's been leaving in the hiker's record books along the PCT.
Strayed frequently leaves quotes or poems that are meaningful to her along her journey.
One rainy day, Strayed finds a llama that escaped from a young boy hiking with his grandmother. Strayed chats with the boy, who asks her about her parents. After she mentions her mother's death, the boy sings " Red River Valley " to Strayed, saying it is a song his mother used to sing to him.
After the boy and his grandmother carry on down the trail, Strayed breaks down and cries. On September 15, after hiking for 94 days, Strayed reaches the Bridge of the Gods on the Columbia River between Oregon and Washington, ending her journey. At various points along the trail, including at the end of the bridge, Strayed encounters a red fox, which she interprets as carrying the spirit of her mother watching over her.
She reflects that, four years in the future, she will remarry at a spot in view of the bridge, five years after that have a son and one year after that have a daughter named Bobbi, after Strayed's mother. By far, this is the hardest movie I've ever made in my life. I didn't hike a thousand miles, of course, but it was a different kind of physical rigor.
The Beauty of a Brutal Honesty: A Profile of Cheryl Strayed | Poets & Writers
Charles Paige, a staunch believer in Fullblood genetics and the attributes they offered. I so enjoyed his friendly but serious calls he would make. Harlan Ritchie authored stating that statistics revealed that Maine-Anjou had the largest percentage of registration growth of any breed since Harlan Ritchie to write an article on his past visit abroad viewing continental breeds and his thoughts regarding then and present-day breeding programs.
The basic message of the guest editorial was the need for continued emphasis on high percentage Maine-Anjou breeding programs in the midst of MaineTainer popularity.
I have heard it many times over the years that our national junior show is as well accepted as any breed organization has to offer.
That holds a lot of meaning that we need to cherish and keep developing in as sound and fast a fashion as we can.
The Beauty of a Brutal Honesty: A Profile of Cheryl Strayed
The discussion, as we are all now fully aware of, was born from the discovery of PHA and TH as they related to Maine-Anjou breeding programs. Moving forward, the AMAA plans to concentrate more on breed specific projects that further substantiate scientific proof of the breeds attributes. A question I hope breeders always ask themselves, because once the foundation is gone it is very hard to retrieve! Our accuracies dictate that the breed needs more data before breeders really can use carcass EPDs as a tool.
As I wind down this editorial, a comment made to me at a recent production sale comes to mind. A long time and very respected breeder and I were discussing my pending retirement at the helm of the AMAA. His comment meant no harm or disrespect, but he stated that he thought a different direction or focus could have been used in recent years to move the breed forward.
I take those comments very seriously but in reflection of the messages conveyed through all of my editorials, I never once doubted that the AMAA board direction was intended for long term success of the breed. Commercial application has always been at the forefront along with the expansion and development of our junior program.
We always need to keep in mind that everything does truly go in a circle. As stated earlier in this column, from the Maine-Anjou breed experienced the largest percentage of growth of any breed. Now through the first quarter of we are still climbing the ladder with a growth of 20 plus percent.
You will see that will truly be a banner year for the AMAA and the dedicated breeding programs that support the association. Each herd reference issue is a very special issue, long recognized as the most read issue of the year. From a personal note this issue is extra special to me as we thank a couple of long time AMAA employees that are moving on with their lives away from this great organization.
I would ask that you take a few moments to read the piece that has been written in thanks for the years of true dedication to their respective positions. The AMAA has been blessed over the years with many fine individuals, none more dedicated with regard to time, effort, honesty and integrity, with a passion to do things the right way, than these two employees have demonstrated.
We are all replaceable at the positions we hold, some are harder to replace than others! These two positions will be replaced, but in my humble opinion not duplicated. From this desk to that of Rhonda Boddicker and Dave Steen, it has been a pleasure and honor to work with two high class individuals.
I have no doubt received more from you than I have given, for that I am ever indebted—you have made my job much easier!
Enjoy life after Maine-Anjou and thank you! Continually building for the future of which the future holds many positives. Out Reach The process has begun to find a new executive vice president.

The process is in the capable hands of a highly qualified search committee and then onto the AMAA board for a final decision. The entire adult and junior membership should be very excited with the dawning of new and fresh ideas that will build upon the firm foundation this association is built on. What an opportunity for you all to renew your full commitment to the future of the Maine-Anjou breed and support new leadership as that person gains your trust and friendship. Besides the opening in of the executive vice-president position, two other positions will be open.
