Re: [at-l] Any thru hikers still on trail?


Don't know if this answers your question. It's part of a message I got from
Rockdancer (GA>ME '97):

So, it sounds as if the Class of 97 is about through. When I summitted on
10/11 (along with five others) the rangers at Daicey Pond had a record of
about 370 thru-hikers having climbed Katahdin.
