[at-l] Very Low Number of Thru-hikers This Year

At Springer last weekend, the ridge runner claimed
that only about 400 - 500 thru-hikers started nobo
this year.  The registers seem to back that number up.

Anyone have any other news regarding this low number? 
It's hard to believe, but the ridge runner is there
every day recording hikers, and though people do start
in April, I would expect that the majority of nobos
have already started by now.

If true, it means the AT and PCT will have nearly the
same number of hikers this year.....
