[pct-l] AT Deaths

 Had a few deaths on the AT from heart attacks. Hikers on the AT list rant 
that Americans are too soft now days and out of shape . ( written by a 23 
year old snowboard/skateboard type I'm convienced ) Your chances of death by 
heart attack on the trail are less than your chances of being crushed in your 
auto driving to buy a new sleeping bag. Even if you do have the BIG ONE 
hiking, so what!!! Better to die doing something you love than not going and 
worrying about it. PS,,,, Jeff Z is now past Mt. Hood and should be to 
Cascade Locks Saturday. ( Hope to meet him there )
