David, glad you brought up one of my favorite subjects. I worked
Konnarock from '92 thru '95 (skipped last year because of my long
section/short thru hike) for periods of one to six weeks. Very
rewarding, especially in terms of the camaraderie that you develop
Konnarock may have its reputation because its the oldest & largest of
the crew programs. Some folks have been coming back every year since it
started over ten years ago. In my experience, it's been
well-administered by the ATC regional staff & operated by the seasonal
crew leaders & camp staff. Highly recommend it.
Not to ignore the other crew programs ATC operates - Mid-Atlantic draws
from the same pool of talent, there's the Green Mountain Patrol, the new
Smokies crew, and FORCE, which is building quite a reputation for the
tough jobs in Maine.
Crew apps. for the coming year are available now - check out the AT home
page <http://www.fred.net./kathy/at.html> for an application.
