While it will be interesting, especially Glen Van Peski's presentation, I will leave it to folks planning thru-hikes. That's not my style of hiking! Your Mileage May Vary, of course.

Jane, it was great meeting you! We had a great group, I'd say at least 40 people.

You too, it was a fun day, I sure picked up lots of great tips and ideas! And, accepted the fact that my ancient heavy gear needs some "refreshing" ;)
