I was scrounging for a warm shirt this morning and pulled out a purple long sleeve with a yellow Backpacker magazine logo. Does anyone remember the AOL/Backpacker tag team hike of the AT back in the 1990's? Each participant got the shirt.
I can't remember the exact year, nor do I remember my exact 50 miles, but it was in Virginia. I hiked with another woman, and took the packet containing a banner and a few other hike-related items from Chase Davidson; can't remember who I handed it off to. Guy Brooks (MtnTopper) was the section coordinator. Is anyone out there a participant of that hike?
Other than a couple of one or two nighters in the Shenandoah I was just getting started in backpacking and learned a lot on that 50 miles, and met some wonderful people who continued to help me learn the basics.
