    They did it!

    The GET was recently thru-hiked for the first time by Jo Swanson and Bart Houck. Congratulations to them on their historic accomplishment. Hopefully more will follow. This trail run west of the AT, from Alabama to New York.

    Is Jo the first female to be the first thru-hiker of any of America's long trails?
