Thru hiked the AT in 2011. This was my first hiking experience which was supported by a cadre of terriffic hikers met along the way. Buffalo Bobby was my hiking companion until his death on September 29th on the trail nearing the end of the 100 Mile Wilderness. I also hiked long stretches with Guardian, Double Check and Brother of the Wind. Although I started alone, I never walked alone. What a wonderful community.
The people we met were certainly the best part of the hike. Meeting Circuit Rider and Sherlock along the way was always a highlight.
