WAYFARERS separately embark upon a quest to find the meaning of life by choosing to journey afield as thru hikers afoot on the Appalachian Trail. Nearing the end of their 2000 mile wrest, while deep in the Maine wilderness, each arrive at Sabbath Day Pond on the evening of Saturday, 21 July 1979 to pass the night.
Sitting by the fire, the seven each relate their hardships and joys experienced while thru hiking the trail, during which discussion, all wholeheartedly agree that traveling upon this journey with other thru hikers has been the most amazingly wonderful companionship and sharing that each has ever before experienced.
That night, when one of the seven thru hikers asks the others, When we are no longer walking on this foot path, where can we go to experience this same feather of camaradery and fellowship? not one of the seven is able to come forward with an answer to this question.
Later that season, all of the seven wayfarers complete their own end-to-end thru hike of the Appalachian Trail, after which each of these seven separately and unbeknownst to the others, spend their lives searching for the answer to the question asked that night by the fire.
Many decades later, the seven wayfarers return and camp together again at Sabbath Day Pond. When we are all gathered to the fire, enjoying the fellowship, each one takes a turn to tell the story of how we came to all acquire our common hope of living forever in paradise.
