Hey, isn't that one of the AT traditions?    Eating a half gallon of ice 
cream at the halfway point for a stupid little wooden spoon. (didn't have the 
five bucks)

Now it's coming back, but I can only remember two others.  Number one, 
picking up a small stone at Springer and placing it on Katahdin. (didn't 
learn of this 'til I was well up the trail)

And number three,  mooning that godawful cog railway on Mt Washington!   
(probably my best day on the trail)

Any other traditions, I may have forgetton about?
