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
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...
