Re: [at-l] Re: Hurricane and Tornado


I read their Shelter entry at DeerPark shelter just a few miles south of Hot
Springs.  They were full of happiness regarding their hike and had had some of
their family join them for a few miles (around Max Patch I think).  They said
that this was their first real hike and that while they loved it, they would
think twice next time.  They had been hiking around a month I think.  It was a
nice long, "Christian" entry.  I also read Wingnut's entries.  He was the one who
died at one of the shelters.  His bandana was supposed to be on it's way north.
Any word on that anyone?
