[at-l] completed thru hikes??

Hi again to Jan, Snowdrod and all.

Well I just read some of Sunny's journal and without a doubt it was indeed
them that  I saw on South Crocker on Sept 20th.  The mentioned in the
journal hat they had got together with Big Red to do the slackpacking after
their injuries so that's the clincher.

My age estimate?  Well, whtever, I guess I looked at Sunset and assumed they
were retirees.  As Jan says "the trail may have aged them".

They looked in good shape and in good spirits.  I just wonder how they'll
slack the 100 mile wilderness?  Maybe they'll become experts on logging
