Hi, I just registered for this mailing group few days ago and I thought I should introduce myself. My name is Amir, I'm from Israel, and I'm going to thru-hike the pct this year. I hike the AT, GA-->ME, in 2001 under the trail name Pooh Bear. It's very helpful to read all your messages, keep up the great work :) See you all at the KiickOff. Amir.
