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....
