    Default Death on the AT

    Chuck Dowling died on the AT yesterday according to a Facebook post by his wife. Chuck starting a hiking Facebook group a couple of months ago that I belonged to.

    Chuck's wife didn't know the details of his death at the time of the post. She was heading to GA to make arrangements

    The FB page was Hike a day with Trey.

    There seems to be some confusion on other FBs about whether "Hike a Day with Trey" Chuck is the same Chuck who runs Woodchuck's Hostel. Is anyone able to confirm/deny? Regardless, condolences to the family and friends of Chuck.

    Yea they are different chucks. But that facebook group is a good one and I have to feel for his wife he left behind. But he went out after a 3 day section hike not many better ways to go.

    Thanks all for your feedback on the identity. It seemed like mistaken identity (different last names, etc) but I wasn't sure.

    Details about what happened seem to be minimal. All from FB (posts from his a woman who identified as his wife). Chuck was on the AT for three days. He collapsed by his car on 7/16/2017. His wife wrote on FB that "(h)e passed away doing something he always loved but had just gotten back into recently."
