Thanks for the info. I guess one has to be on AOL to see it. Oh well.

I wonder if the Backpacker AOL forum folks got their idea from the

below a post that was just made today to the Discussing the AT area of
the page. (For those who haven't visited that section and made a post
there, if you make a post there, you will receive by email any subsequent
posts that are made there - unless you tell it not to subscribe you.)

No. The person in charge of info for the ATC is not at all keen on the
idea of online stuff. He seemed genuinely happy that - in the spirit of
volunteerism associated with the AT - someone had created the site on a
volunteer basis. I would imagine that at some point they would want to
have their full catalog and order form available on the net.

I'm sure it'll change. One thing I've been meaning to do is do a
separate FAQ for regular hiking - rather than just having the one geared

In his 5/29/95 Appalachian Adventure article entitled
"Time to Smell the Flowers", John Harmon of the Atlanta
Journal-Constitution mentions the two hikers who were
murdered at Wapiti in 1981. Often, I browse these pages,
wanting to discuss this tragedy, to warn hikers of
the danger, yet I find this difficult, as one of the
murdered hikers was my cousin Bobby. I am, naturally,
sadly affected at having finally read something about
this tragedy here. I am relieved, however, that those of
you who are planning to hike the AT know that there is
danger beyond being hit by a car or chased by a bear.
I have never been on the AT, and I am curious, is there
some type of rememberance at Wapiti for Bobby and Susan?
At Katahdin? These folks were hiking to raise money for
charity, and deserve to be remembered. Thank you to John
Harmon, for remembering them, and thank you to those of
you who will now. Peace.
