[ Converted text/enriched to text/plain ]
Here's a reference to an article almost sure to spark some flames: The Nation;
Latest Aid on Trail: E-Mail; Technology: Hikers on long treks can get help
from libraries or 'trail angels,' who provide access to a variety of
information. in The Los Angeles Times; Los Angeles, Calif.; Sep 29, 2002;
Glenn Adams.

Author claims that a 5 time AT thru-hiker who was then finishing the IAT up in
Canada told him that 10% of hikers carry wireless email devices; while another
IAT hiker told him the number is closer to 50%. Wowzers!
