    FWIW, the climb up the Ribble is probably steeper/tougher than the AT route, but the AT route is not tough. I really enjoyed this section.

    I agree. I was driving a tow truck in '78 and have some exciting memories. I don't remember the storm of '93 crippling us here in Indiana like it did in Appalachia. Certainly not as bad as '78.
