RE: [AT-L] Re: [AT-L] Trail Names and the Web project

I've trekked in California, Colorado, Washington, Florida, Georgia, North
Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, over the CD & along the AT, and even in
S.E. Asia. I've been Trekker Ed since the middle 1980's. Others can use my
handle, but I have the photos and journals to go with me. What matters to me
is that no matter where I go, there I am.
