Franklin Opera House, Franklin, NH held a event, showing  Randy Pierce, his  service dog The Mighty Quinn, human guide Justin Fuller and filmmaker Dina Sutin's Four More Feet movie of the challenging winter hike of 48 New Hampshire Mountains last winter.   His movie you can purchase for $20 and your donation will go to his  fund raising organization 2020 Vision Quest where 100% of donations goes to Guiding Eyes for the Blind and New Hampshire Association for the Blind, please check it out.

Before the showing of the movie Four More Feet at Franklin's Opera House,
Ralph & Jo's Cafe held a meet and greet, serving outstanding food and allowing us to meet, talk with Randy, his wife Tracy, Quinn his dog, Justin his "seeing eye guide" and film maker Dina.

After the movie, Randy, Justin and Dina held an answer and question session, adding background information about the climb, his service dog Quinn, and honest answers how Randy has handled his blindness.  He lost his vision at age 22 due to an unknown neurological disorder plus was unable to walk.  Hard work and determination he was able to walk again and hike mountains!!!

I returned home last night,  feeling  rewarded and honored meeting Randy, his wife Tracy, his dog Quinn, Justin his guide and film maker Dina...what a pleasure.  Thank you for a wonderful evening.
