Re: [pct-l] New PCT thruhike video!!

I wanted to add that you can order this video by mail from Lynne Whelden,
1025 Shaw Place, Williamsport, PA 17701 for 39.95 + 3.00 s/h. It will also
come out in June at REI stores and the PCTA will carry it in the future. I
talked to Lynne last night, this is where the info is from and if possible
(my suggestion) send postal money order or bank money order in place of
personal check. 
It is a how to hike the PCT video, not just pictures of the trail, with
hiker interviews. Lynne did the PCT last year and this year is working on
a CDT video. Enjoy...
