I don't have any info on the AOL-ers "tag" hike...but it's an 
intriguing idea.  They'd have to coordinate the time and place of 
their "hand-offs" pretty closely.

Kathy, years ago, I came close to thru-hiking the trail with a 
college buddy of mine.....but marriage and kids got in the way <g>.
Recently, I stumbled across your excellent AT Web site....it has 
rekindled my interest in the trail.  I've been following some of the 
postings from the reporters.  They do a great job of capturing the 
spirit of the trail experience.
