There are some folx who consider hiking at least a little of the Trail 
in each state good enough to call a thru-hike!!  :-))))   I saw the 
Washington Mountain Road crossing two days ago myself!!!!  Pilot and I 
hit a lot of the MA-CT crossings on our way to High Point SP in Jersey 
to surprise Amy.  Spent the night in Great Barrington even, we did.  
(With Cody Girl...who is having a grand time)   So...Bo....tell me/us 
again the name of the town you're in/near. I was within a mile of Gorp's 
house and she was "3,000 miles away!!" she said. She flew home this 
morning, in fact.  I digress somethin' fierce....
