I just found out about this group from the AT Web page and I'm
pretty psyched about it (I get a really obscene amount of pleasure from
receiving mail). I hope I can contribute something to the group. My name
is Michael Roberts. In 1992, I graduated from the University of Tennessee
at Knoxville (near the Smokies) with a Bachelors degree in Engineering
Mechanics. My (then) girlfriend Sam and I began a southbound thru-hike two
weeks later. We began at Katahdin May 31, 1992 and reached Springer
December 6. My thru-hike was easily the best time of my life, and is
probably the thing of which I'm most proud (so far anyway; I'm 26 so there
will hopefully be other nice things in store!). Anyway, I'm excited to
find others with similar enthusiasm for the AT.
Right now I'm a graduate student in biomedical engineering at
Tulane University in New Orleans. It's flat as a pancake here, and I sure
do miss the mountains. Of course, New Orleans is a pretty fun town, but
its nothing like the Appalachians.
Hope I can help answer questions and contribute thoughtful dialogue
to this group. And maybe I can run into some folks I met on the Trail in
1992. Man, that would make my day!
Later, Mike (ME-->GA '92)
