[at-l] AWITW

I've read the book, and to be honest, I don't think I understand the 
controversy (about the book).  Its a funny story about two guys, woefully 
ill-prepared, hiking a trail.  That trail just happens to be the AT, but 
could be any trail.  Anyway, given the actors, I'm wondering if they're 
doing the film as more of a "Grumpy Old Men" sequel.  We'll see.  The folks 
at Amicalola are expecting to be overrun once the movie comes out.

Filming? Like for a movie? What movie?
Is there a book, too? Is it out, yet?
Who wrote it? Have I heard of the author?
Anything to do with the AT?

(You know, people still make faces when I, upon hearing the author's 
of the book with the title-which-cannot-be-read, immediately plug my ears 
and sing loud, discordant "LAAAaaa-laaa-laaaaaa, can't hearrrr youuuuuu."

I don't know if it's the dance that immediately follows (I AM a hazard when 
dancing), or (more likely), the threat that I might start up again.

As a single guy, I can't tell you how many dates this has ruined.


Spatior, ergo sum.

Filming was going for AWITW.  I didn't see any of it, but talked to folks 
who did (including some of
the staff).  Neat.
Robert Redford and Nick Nolte were there and seem to be the principle
