I wouldn't say it's a matter of worrying about something. More a matter
of some people are excited by computers and the whole idea of the
Internet and others are not. I know lots of folks who just don't want to
hear a thing about the Net, and of course many who can no longer imagine
life without it... As I said before, I would imagine that down the road
the ATC will probably get their catalog online, but I certainly wouldn't
hazard a guess as to when that might be.
On the topic of the memorial, it appears that none exists for the hikers
who were killed at the Wapiti shelter in Virginia back in '81.
However there is one
in Mass. for the 2 hikers who were killed in Pa. in '90. It is also for
an active outdoors person who was killed in a plane crash in Costa Rica
on her way to observe rainforest damage that same year. There's a story
about this in the Sept./Oct. '91 AT News.
