I found this list while perusing Kathy Bilton's homepage and, well, here
I am. I generally have an aversion to mailing lists, so I hope the
conversation stays germane and the traffic stays reasonable.
I'm a Computer Science / Electrical Engineering major at Rice University.
As for more important things, my father and I plan to hike the AT in
2 parts: summers of '96 and '97. Sure a true thru-hike might be
preferred, but it just doesn't fit into a student schedule.
When I was 13 I heard a teacher speak about his 3-part AT hike. 6 years
later, while sitting in my dorm room, that presentation entered my head
for some reason. A week later I had convinced myself to hike the AT.
That's about it for the inspirational story.
We've just now started the more earnest planning, equipment gathering,
etc. I'm pretty well-read on the ATC materials; the hardest part now is
keeping my patience for another 9 months.
It's great to see technology bringing people with common interests
together. Feel free to mail me, but be warned: I spend enough time in
front of a computer between work and study, that I often will avoid
e-mail that I don't have to respond to. You may also check out my
homepage, although I won't pretend it's very exciting.
