    Appalachian Trail Thru Hike

    Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the government's purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.

    I, with a nephew hike about 130 miles of the App Trail about 30 years ago. From Cherokee NC to Grandfather Mountain. Seems like yesterday, we still babble about from time to time. We didn't do it all at once, just over night weekends and some 2 and 3 night weekends. Beautiful views and plenty of critters, large and small.

    I hiked the AP through Shenandoah National Park back when I was in college. Hope to get back some day.

    I hiked the White Mountains (AT) back in '78. Did almost 2 weeks hiking the trails in the mountains; I live about a 2 minute drive from the AT in upstate NY. See lots of hikers, especially during the summer months and every once in a while we end up bringing someone off the trail whose fallen and busted an ankle or leg.

    Once I tell you that we agree to disagree there will be no more discussion between us in the thread so please don't waste your time continuing to argue your points because I will not respond.

    I'd love to hike the Grand Canyon.....I'd really love to ride a mule to the bottom but, I don't think they do that anymore.

    I had neighbor, when I lived in Tucson who belonged to a hiking club for seniors, that woman was more than 20 years older than me and, she hiked almost every hiking trail in Arizona.
