Well the ex-wife has been gone for a while, so that’s step #1.

I handed off copies of them to RockDancer a few weeks back, so perhaps he will serialize parts of them when the time is right…

How did you contain yourself long enough not to put !!!!!!!!!! after this announcement?


Good for you for having not thrown them away years ago.  To all who have harrassed you to get rid of "all this stuff," BLAH!


Good show, Tom.

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.
