I'll echo the thanks to Ryan but I'll go further. An e-friend sent me
an internet rant a couple of days ago about how wonderful things were
100 years ago compared to now and got me thinking about how things had
changed since 1906. I won't go into the whole list but one thing
relevant to AT-L is that 100 years ago there was no AT. I'll concede
to my ranting friend that there are lots of problems we have today
that we didn't have 100 years ago but OTOH lots of things are good
about living now including the AT and all our other trails both long
and short. Happy hiking to one and all.
