[pct-l] Fw: Southbound Hikers

Thanks, Don. I'm forwarding this to the list if you don't mind. It's
encouraging to hear that Ben made it to Mexico, that a solo hiker thru-hiked
the PCT southbound. That's quite exceptional, really; almost unprecedented.
But if anyone was going to do it this year, it would've been him:
experienced, trained, lightweight philosophy, and exceedingly positive
attitude. Oh, and vegetarian as I recall. "Digesting meat consumes a lot of
energy." I tend to agree.
