Re: holidays

I hiked on Easter, the 4th of July, Halloween, and Thanksgiving in '94, 
mainly because I ws such a slow hiker and I refused to leave the Trail 
until I got it done!  Holidays are a blast, because hikers that are out 
there do really fun things to create a holiday atmosphere.  We built a 
pilgrim/hiker snowman and celebrated Thanksgiving with pretzels and power 
bars, giving thanks that we could actually be out in the woods and 
hiking.  On halloween we wore costumes, even though by then there were 
very few hikers on the Trail (just a lot of hunters).  We started on 
Easter Sunday; gavethe ranger at Amicalola a shock by walking into the 
office in my Easter dress and annoucing I was planning to thru-hike!  
Hope everyone had a happy Easter and blessed Passover this year.
