Yes, definitely unfortunate he didn't get the chance to show his slide show
at the ALDHA Gathering. I saw him just 30 minutes from Hanover in 2001 two
days before the start of the Gathering. His first or second slide was of a
white blaze and the third slide was of rime ice covering the Mount
Washington Observatory. He initially planned to walk from his house, right
on the AT to Mount Katahdin and then road walk to the seacoast before
catching a boat over to Europe. When he got to Mt. Washington they strongly
advised him to get off the AT and walk down the road thanks to the icy
conditions. He listened and started his road from the top Washington.
They were on the verge of getting him in but he ended up getting killed in
Afghanistan before it could happen.
