Hi Sterling,

I guess my ignorance was showing.  I should have lurked a little I guess
before I assumed about this group.  It does appear to be a wide range
news list...not specific to one area as I assumed...and you know what
they say about people who assume ;^>

I guess I'm pretty new to the backcountry...I've only been hiking since
July...but it has become a passion with me.  Typically my husband and I
do day hikes and an occasional overnighter.  Great way to get away from
it all.  I'm not real fluent yet in all the aspects of the backcountry
but hope to pick up some good info from all the great people here...and
hopefully I can give my 2 cents as well.

You're right on the trail maintenance...can't very well get there from
here :-)
