    Baro's is a great journal about a hike I no longer refer to by that sometimes-hyphenated term you used.

    The first and still the best.

    If you are taling about this year, Bush whacker seems to be off to a good start.

    Lots more to come though. I think there will be many good ones this year.
    The season is just starting.

    Thanks! Finishing it would be a challenge, though. It may not be the best of 2006, but it's probably the longest.

    Cheers!

    I think he's around and if I'm not mistaken showed up at a Gathering a few years back. I don't want to spoil the ending but he had a set back after his hike and as far as I know is doing better. One time he answered an email, you may try to write him.
