  I had wondered how long I have been on this list.  I did a quick search of the archives and was able to find my first post which is below.

Hi All,I subscribed to this list yesterday.  Most of the other list that Ibelong to have requested a short introduction.  I did not get thatinvite when I subscribed to this list, though I found severalintroductions in the archives.  Therefor I decided to provide a shortintroduction.My name is Robert Dudley (please call me Bob) and I work as a chemistPh.D. type) for the United States Department of Agriculture inPhiladelphia Pa.  I live in Easton, PA which is approximately 15 milessouth of Wind Gap Pa.  I therefore have ready access to the AT.  Ihave hiked sections of the AT since 1962 though my total mileagecannot exceed 100 miles.  Recently I have been thinking about hikingthe whole AT.  Next week I will turn 52 and the window for this hikeis growing smaller.  As I need to work to support my family I willhave to hike the trail in sections in one to two week time spans.  Asan assistant scout master I do have the opportunity to hike sectionsof the PA portion of the trail with the boy scouts.My trail name is Grey Owl.  Grey Owl was a Canadian author who wrotestories about the Indians in Canada.  Grey Owl was really anEnglishman who moved to Canada and lived among the Native Peoples.  Hewas truly inspired by their way of live and he lived like them.  Heenjoyed the outdoors and lamented about the lost of the wilderness inCanada.  So if see my trail name you know that I have passed through Iuse the name in honor of a truly remarkable person.I will post some of the hiking Journals as I travel along the AT, butotherwise I probaly will not post a lot.  I am here to learn and sharepeoples dreams.  Fell free to contact me off list.Bob Dudleyrdudley at arserrc.govA beautiful day.  I wish I was on the trail instead of in the lab.The first thing was that I was 52 when I posted this message and I am now 64. I still haven't whole hiked the whole AT, thought I have 500 miles finished.  Mygoal this year (2010) is to hike the long trail.  Can you tell that I am bored?  I have twelve more working days before I retire!!Cheers,BobPS The old e-mail address doesn't work.
