Hello All!

I just joined this list a few days ago after the urging of a certain 
runner/hiker who is also a member of the running list I'm on :-)  I was 
skeptical at first, because before our thru-hike last year, my girlfriend 
(Dharma Bum '98) and I were on the ATML and AT98 lists and I didn't want to 
go back to that...

I don't want to start talking dirt about the *other* list because it really 
did help us plan for our hike (we had no knowledge of the AT or thru-hiking 
when we first read about it and decided to do it two years ago) but I do 
want to say that this purer-than-thou attitude really affected us in a 
negative way...what a joy to get out on the trail and realise that most of 
the thru-hikers weren't like that at all :-)

Anyway, I am happy to have joined this list, and, providing I can keep up 
with the mail volume of the various lists I belong to, I hope to stay a 
while :-)  I am not, however a prolific poster so there go my participation 
marks...oops, wrong list...
