Hi Jim,

Welcome, my name Rich Milewski, with a little bit of luck I will be a Thru
Hiker this year.  I expect to leave about the 1st. week of April.  I also
teach in a private school in New Jersey. I post messages on this list from
time to time and I have found that most folks are both helpful and kind.
Good Luck.  Rich
