[at-l] advice

My best to the 99ers...

First, the usual:
-Go as light as possible (pack).
-Go as strong as possible (body).
-Use two sticks (protect the knees).
-Pay attention to nutrition.

Some hikers have little to no appetite when they first get on the trail. 
It is important to eat, so consider packing hearty soups and other foods 
that you love.

(anyone still reading?)
I suggest women hikers learn to pee standing up. Much more convenient 
than getting in and out of the pack and the sweaty shorts each time.
