Just heard through the grapevine that my nephew is through the Smokies and now near Davenport, NC. Sounds like he's making good progress.

I guess we had better be safe here so I'm gonna ask...which Les is this? Are you the one who did not have a birthday yesterday? If so we apoligize for not knowing that Les is more, "common a name", that is, than thought. I hope your nephew does well on his journey. If you are the Les that had a birthday yesterday we all missed it but wish you a happy one belatedly anyway. If you are the Les that neither had a birthday nor didn't, we too feel your pain. If your name is actually Sel you are probably dyslexic and should see a doctor.
If you are one of the many people (most of you actually) to whom this makes absolutly no sense then you are normal and have no need to seek mental evaluation. PAY NO ATTENTION TO THAT MAN ON THE KEYBOARD, HE HAS HAD TEN CUPS OF COFFEE AND IS SUFFERING FROM EXTREME SPRING FEVER!

I've only done a few strtches of the Va, Md, PA parts of the trail. Some of what I heard is the roughest. My hat's off to anyone who can stick with the whole thing. A gent from this area, recently completed his third end to end, at age 81.
Years back I met a fella, who used a llama as a pack animal to hike the trail. He even carried a small battery TV set with him. I grew up not far from the Green Point Store, which was a popular provision and package stop for trail hikers. A lot of Southbound hikers would have a fresh pair of boots sent to them, general delivery, at the store, which was also a post office. I don't even know if the store is still open. The Appalachain trail generally follows the first ridge north of Pa's Great Valley, except where it skips to the second or third ridge to skirt the Ft. Indiantown Gap Military base.
Good Luck to him on his quest.
