I've been watching this thread with interest. I too go back a good ways and
miss Wingfoot and some of the old gang. I never have been much of a
participant, but enjoy reading and jumping in from time to time. I keep
busy with my section of the AT (Bootens Gap to Hazeltop) and a local
rails-to-trails project (Dahlgren Railroad Heritage Trail, thanks Felix for
your support!) that has become quite the political brouhaha. But we have
fun with it!

Imagine that after all these years - me an Dan in the same post again! Now
all you have to do is add Baltimore Jack in there and you'd have a
Met Jack in Port Clinton in 1997 - he blasted me for 1) driving hikers to a
pay phone - he said they were 'hikers' and should have walked to the phone,
and 2) for talking about trail maintainers on the at-l (forgot now what I
had said) without ever having actually done any maintenance. I took number
2 to heart and did trail maintenance with Bob Peoples in the Laurel Gorge
for a few years in a row. Now I can talk about trail maintenance. Got
nothing to say...
I remember Jack blasting us all on at-l for slamming Dan, specifically for
some of us saying that Dan actually did not do all of the thru-hikes that he
claimed. Jack said Dan was a man of integrity...
Anyway, Jack became a good friend to us at at-l. I will miss him...
Felix, I'll be in Vietnam over the summer. Send me your new address...
Good to see so many of the old (and I use that term literally) folks still
on the at-l. Great that we are still here even though other technology has
passed on by. I haven't hiked on the trail since November 2007 when I went
from AFSP to Three Forks. Short, cold hike...
My wife and I drove to Pittsburgh this past fall from our home in Florida,
and we did stop at the trail at Kimberley Creek so that I could touch a
white blaze. There was a sign , 'Do not leave deer carcasses'. That is my
new philosophy of life...
