[pct-l] Pacific Nth West Rain

Good evening, all you fellow NW rain-lovers,

I started tromping parts of the old Oregon Skyline Trail, that eventually
became the PCT, back in the mid '60s.  I can testify that the hills were no
steeper then than they are now.  They only seem steeper to me now because it
takes longer to go up.  I agree with Pat McManus about why:  The hole in the
ozone layer is letting in too much gravity.  My wife has another theory
about why I've slowed down, but its just too ridiculous to discuss.

I wish I would have thru-hiked then.  Not because the trail was then really
a trail, but because Steel-Eye was then really Steel-Eye.
