Well, while she probably isn't the youngest, Sage Clegg, who completed the PCT
in 09 and the CDT earlier this year gets my nomination for the "toughest"! Not
satisfied with "Embracing the Brutality" of the CDT and squeezing until it gave
in to her will, she's now over halfway through a Sobo AT thruhike pounding out
high 20-mile days. Awesome!

I second Handlebar's sentiment.
I first heard of Sage on the CDT-L. She seemed a long way off and behind me. Next thing I knew she was right there in the Bob Marshall Wilderness..Alone, Grizzly bears be damned. I was fortunate enough to keep pace with her for a while. My plan was to jump into her arms for safety should we be assaulted by Grizzlies!
Seriously, Sage was completely in thru-hiker mode as we proceeded after dark to hike towards Glacier one night. She did not even use a headlamp! I will never forget when we were straining to read that sign.. the one that said: "BIG HOLE AHEAD". Sure enough there was a bottomless pit right smack dab in the middle of the trail.
I will also never forget that packrat.. the one that stole one of Sage's socks and took it down into it's den. Damn that was funny!
This Hiker is FEARLESS! Sage Clegg gets my vote for "most inspiring hiker" met on trail.
Crikey, she just finished the CDT and went right out onto the AT less than a month later. It's like.. gonna be winter and all that.. Doesn't bother Sage.
Oh Yea, I thought I had the smallest, lightest shelter on the CDT.. until I met Sage with her tiny, 4 ounce, whatever the hell that thing was.
My favorite quote from Sage: "I was Hungry, cold, and tired.. Now I am warm, dry, and full of Chocolate!"
Hey Sage.. Hope you see lots of Pink Unicorns! (Inside joke)
