main street, held in late August. In 2000, PCT hikers were invited to part=
icipate for the first time, but I've yet to hear anything about this having=
become a tradition. Anyone know?

the shower, fell out and in the process collapsed my left lung and broke si=
ribs!" He is okay after a bit of a hospital stay and will be joining his
wife in Sth Calif. soon. He'll have to put off completing the trail for
