    Vic says....I walked into Clover Point with Dana today and talked with him for awhile...he seems like a real nice guy. I had several questions for him. He said he had come through a lot of snow, he had come through the Rockies all the way on trails, and his heaviest pack weight on the trip was 70 pounds. We talked about the Appalachian Trail and Bill Bryson's book, "A Walk In The Woods" I felt energized after I left him and felt like I could walk across Canada.......well, maybe not.

    I can't go and I wish I could, it would be great to be there for the end of this marathon hike, so hopefully some members will get a chance to participate and let's hope for better weather
