Charlotte Taney was transformed by the Appalachian Trail. Initially nervous, she blossomed into a steely-eyed hiking machine. That, at least, was how she was described in one blog.

She can be emailed at, while you can read her blog about the Appalachian Trail on Blogspot. The link will take you to part one of her trail journey. She's also on Facebook. Jessa continues to prepare diligently, with an early shakedown of her pack. Please keep trail names for Jessa coming in.

You can find out more about Therm-A-Rest and other outdoor gear by Cascade Designs by calling them at 800-531-9531. We had another visit from our very own Triple-Crowner, my buddy, Francisco Miller, or Karate Kid. Remember to write to me to tell me what I'm doing wrong, and right. Drop me a line about anything to
