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.
