I also noticed this.  There's no way he had 95 mail drops soley for the AT.
Think about it, there aren't that many towns!  He'd be going off trail EVERY
day!  Even at a snails pace, (compared to Brians) most hikers will average
about 30 drops or resupplies per trail.  That high number HAD to be for the
three trails.  But......  I could be wrong.  : )
