Good question!

Indeed it is, at the substantial risk of appearing cliqueish or clubby.  I
wonder if your estimate of 60%-70% internet access among potential PCT
thru-hikers isn't a bit high?  Offhand, I can't think of even one of my
friends who are very into outdoor rec. that have net access.   I used the
WWW to research my AT thru-hike, and never stumbled on the several relevant
discussion fora.

Tangent: the outdoor shop I work for just put up a web page, and it is
*embarassingly* bad.

Sounds good to me -- see y'all in a few months!
