yep, i have!
and i thouroughly enjoyed it!
it made the trail more spiritually real for me, not just the technical aspects
of it. there were some days when i read it that i didn't give up
planning even when it seemed impossible at the time.
i also gave it to my parents and they understood me and my goal a little
but... the book also introduced the idea of post-trail depression, which
scared me some.
