    The ridgerunner told me this week that the trail has been busy with the Birches filling up a few times last week.

    Ya, they give you a # when you register for the Birches. Which is positively absolutly mandatory to register, or they prosecute you, take all your gear including your boots, and leave you naked, alone in the Maine woods.

    Hey Kirby, Peanut, Bad Idea, Dirty Harry. Congratulations - Glad to hear that you guys made it.

    I summited on September 2nd. (# 167). Smokin Joe, Cranky Pete, Freebird, The Professor, Meat Bag & Doxie, Spider, and Billy the Kid also summited that day.

    Danger Danjo, Zero, Stomp & Shuffles, Wet Sox & Jukebox, and Shadow Cast plus maybe a few others summited on September 1st.


    Best Wishes for a safe and successful journey to all those out on the trail.
    If I can't carry it in my heart or on my back, I really don't need it.

    Hey Shiloh!! Congrats to you, too...and thanks for the info on the others, too..I've wondered about some of them. Did Blake summit Sept. 1, too, with Danger Danjo?

    Hope you are well and enjoying where you are...I'm still working on the transition...it's getting better every day, but I think I regressed when I went downtown for a bachelorette party--so many lights, loud music, people, craziness. Anyway, Peace,
    Peanut

    I just got back from hiking from Gorham to the north side of Saddleback Mnt a couple of days ago. Still a lot of thru-hikes doing the final streach. I'd say at least 20 who I meet along the way. Some of them were Keychian, Zen, Tailgate,Trout Bum, Bull Dog, Zero-Zero and my partner for this section, Peregrine trail dancer. When I got back to Gorham, saw there were still a lot of hikers passing through town, so it isn't finsihed yet either.

    Man, I forgot how hard that section of trail is! Using my 6 pound Limmer boots didn't help, but being able to walk up slick ledge without slipping was nice, too bad my knees didn't like it too much. Only took one full body plant into a mud hole. But except for one rainy day, the weather was great and the views spetacular!

    Looks like I got a little over 800 miles of the AT done this year, not to bad for section hiking, wish I had the time to have done all of Maine.
    The AT - It has it's ups and downs...
