[cdt-l] Paid Hiking



Ginny -  Marcia  saw the post and her first words were "I am going to skip
the AT and get this job."  After discussing it with her for several minutes,
I convinced her to stay with the program and hike the AT. Maybe they will
have that job opening again next year. If anyone gets this job, Please leave
a few trails undone.

Less than 2 weeks to the AT and counting down,

Ken
