I know this list is for the PCT, but I figure some of the listers may be
in the east so I thought I'd pass on this invitation.
If you haven't heard of it. HATT2000 will happen over Labor Day Weekend
next year. It sort of grew out of the idea that hikers that meet and grow
friends over the internet don't always get a chance to hike together
schedules and geography.
So at noon on Friday Sept 1 2000, 70 teams of hikers ( team means individuals,
couples, groups, double-ups ) will be positioned at 35 locations along the
entire Appalachian Trail ( 2 teams at each location approx 60 trail miles
Handshakes will be exchanged, then one team will hike south, and the other
will hike north. 72 hours, and about 30 trail miles later, at noon on
Monday Sept 4 2000,
new pairings of teams, that have hiked from opposite directions, will meet
handshakes. In this manner, the entire trail will be hiked, with the
touching of hands
unifying the entire event...
