    When is the book going to be published? The night the news broke of a search underway for a lost hiker on the AT is when my SO and I talked for the first time of hiking the AT. In a way, her tragedy was the impetus for me returning to a simpler, outdoorsy life. After hiking through that area several times since, I still can't fathom how she was not found, how she got lost and how she survived for so long.

    I was finishing my thru hike in September 2013 and remember all the fliers and people still searching for her when I was in Maine. You do not realize how vast the Maine terrain is and not always the best marked on the AT, so I could understand how she got confused and lost, and unfortunately made some bad survival decisions. God rest her soul.

    Kept tabs on her disappearance and the final sad, albeit presumed discovery of her remains. Many would say, including myself, she was doing what she loved and had the courage to follow her dream. Thank you for taking on this difficult but necessary task, hopefully will not only help prevent other tragedies from occurring but provide her with a lasting written memorial.
