  1. Thanks Guys for being out there keeping an eye on things..

  2. too bad they're that busy

  3. Regarding the threatening messages left at a trailhead, everyone please be very careful and very alert. There are too many unsolved events around hiking trails in northern New England. Maybe just a crank but if you see or experience anything that feels strange or threatening, please report it to authorities and let other hikers know. Thank you.

  4. Any other word or incident with the weird AT guy, especially with the missing AT hiker, not being seen for one week.
