I love hearing their experiences. I want to be there and feel like I am-sort of. What a life time experience for Lafe and the rest.

I’m so bummed! I was catching up to Wanderer and absolutely sure I would meet him a couple of weeks back, based on his AT shelter register comments (did he get his iPod back?)
But last I saw of his name was at Brown Mountain Creek Shelter. I climbed Cold (Cole) Mountain in a hideous, freezing rainstorm, so now I’m wondering if he got off to go to town before that.
Anyway, I’m off the trail for a few weeks to do some necessary (and good) things in “the World,” but back on in June and headed for Maine. I hope I get to meet him. His drawings are great and I like what I’ve heard from him on the podcast.
And thanks, Gizmo, for SotT. You saved my butt last winter when I was going through trail withdrawal.

I turn 60 this January and if I can pull it off to hike the AZT next year. Your show helps to keep Me focused and excited.

Awesome! The AZT is an amazing trail.

Here’s what I didn’t know. Last Saturday, I was down in Harpers Ferry and saw a guy in the ATC with a cool uke by the name of Wanderer. Today, Wander had made it up to Pine Grove Furnace SP and I saw him again. I didn’t make the connection until I was checking out his awesome A.T. Museum register entry that mentioned SOTT and the connection was made. Sadly, Wanderer had already hiked on and I wasn’t able to express my love for this podcast. So if you see this Wanderer, it was a pleasure meeting you and maybe I will see you again, up the trail.
