Thanks for the great site. I made it from Springer to the NH boarder in 01. I hope to finish it up someday but work called my name and i had to leave the trail early. I'm now working over in the Middle East and dreaming of being back in the mountains where for the first time in my life I was really FREE! I miss the trail, miss the friends i made. Thanks for the pictures they brought back great memories! Any 01'ers drop me a line. I would really like to hear from Wicked Whale, Stargazer, and a few others i cant remember their names.

I really enjoyed seeing your pictures of the AT and people you hiked with. I wish I had taken more shots of fellow hikers. I value seeing them now, long after the hike, than most of the scenery pics I took. Sluggo GA-ME 4/8/96 - 10/4/96

Great to see the guys and girls of '96. Great to see you, Kevin. Just discovered your site. Some pics are cloudy, but its nice to see the Trail from your eyes. I finished just after you on Oct 25, in a total whiteout. If any of the 96er's out there want to E-mail me do so at or maybe I'll see you on the Trail. I'm halfway thrjough the second time and will start from Harpers maybe this spring if my body allows me. Missed a year with injury and gained some weight, but I'm tryin' to get it back.

Hey Snail-No-More, I made it back alive! Finished my hike, I am now over 1/2 way! Had a great hike and met a lot of great people. Could have done without the VA Roller Coaster in 95+ Degree temperatures however. Hopefully next year I will do annother chunk, and finish in two years.

April Fools to May 15, GA to Damascus, Class of '96. There are times when I think I have it suppressed and in complete remission...I'm back in the "real" world, afterall...But wonderful pages like this makes me heartbroken for those halcyon days, and, worse, they make me want to create new memories. Future thru-hikers, beware the Jabberwock -for he shall soon return...

The dream of hiking the AT was realized in May, 1996 after graduating from school (VT, in fact!!); however, the abrupt, unanticipated change in lifestyle and sense of loneliness caught me off-guard and I left the trail 300+ miles later. Someday, with a blessing from my wife and "then understanding" son, perhaps I'll be able to revisit and fulfill the dream. Thanks for sharing your experience.

Snail- I was thrilled to find your site ... very well done. I followed you for 2,000 miles, but I'm not sure if we ever met. I left the trail on October 5th at Caratunk General Store to return to school. I was there with Noodle, Slap Happy, Squirrel and some other hikers -- one of which may have been you. I'm sure you'll agree that we hit Maine at THE perfect time of the year; I know I will return one autumn to finish those few miles to Katahdin. To those of you contemplating a thru-hike, you only live once, and this is something that you shouldn't miss! Christopher Fuller 'The Little' Bull Moose GA -> ME '96
