[pct-l] New Kid on the Block

Hello, everyone.  Just wanted to introduce myself, since I'm new to the
list. I'm a 1982 "graduate" of the PCT thru-hike (along with my two friends
Harry Carson and Ray Clark), and while indulging in one of my frequent PCT
nostalgic moods (specifically, a remembrance of the giardia I came down with
on Hat Creek Rim) I came across the PCTA website and its link to this
mailing list.  Wow, next thing you know there'll be PCTers connecting
directly to the Web through a notebook and satellite uplink!  Then we'll be
able to chat in real-time with them and drive them batty with excruciatingly
descriptions of pepperoni and italian sausage pizza, Starbucks ice cream,
and Dungeness crab -- just to name a few of my own favorite PCT food
fantasies (OK, OK, Starbucks Espresso ice cream didn't exist when I hiked
the PCT, but I'm sure if I'd been a little more imaginative back then I
would've invented it!).

Well, so long for now.  I look forward to hearing about other people's
experiences.  Any 1982 PCTers, or other Oregonians out there?

Til later...
