Re: [at-l] Beginner's Test Run before 3-day AT hike

     D-- A) I love your writing style; it is quite communicative, and 
     communicates perfectly the same *spirit* which all of us share, no 
     matter the level of prior experience. "Keep up the good work!" Please!
     B) Speaking from "Marathoner" land (where I am an *infrequent* 
     visitor), water needs are a function of "time up" as much as miles. 
     But I think you've figgured that out anyway, haven't you......--TMc

     Whew!  Thank's so much to those of you who have taken the time to 
     encourage me (and say you want to read these posts). ;-)  I would 
     probably think I was crazy to be trying this if it weren't for all the 
     wonderful voices taking these early efforts seriously. 
My total water usage for the 5 miles (approximate length of each day 
planned for the 3-day hike) was 8 liters.    It would have been nice to not 
have to stop and take off the pack to get water.
