I have two double-sided mimeographed guides from 1982.

1)      The Philosopher's Bootleg Guide to the AT: 1982, signed by Maret -
The Philosopher

2)      The 1982 Bushwhackers Guide To The Appalachian Trail, by a fellow
named Lewis Alexander

I hiked  in 1986 and used the "PG" which I believed to be the third bound 
edition, 1984  being the first year of the little book. I thought there were

only two or three  years of the "two mimeographed page edition". If so there

would be no 1978  edition. Has anyone checked the Yearbook to see when the 
Philosopher made  his first Thru Hike? 

If I remember correctly, The Philosopher hiked the AT in 1980, and then
there were 10 editions of
the guide (81-90). But I believe the first few editions were known as the
bootleg guide, and
expanded to become the Philosopher's Guide when ATC started publishing it.
