We have lift off

Okay! It took me about a month and a half longer that I anticipated but, as of 3 hours ago, is up and running. The web site and phone system are built. Now comes the real challenge: getting the word out to hikers, trail angels, and the outdoors community; and encouraging people to call in. I'm looking forward to getting filled with the stories, the personalities, and the magic of The Appalachian Trail. I'm looking forward to helping hikers share their journeys and communicate with one another. I'm looking forward to raising some awareness for environmental and conservation issues through the stories of the trail. And, I'm looking forward to being able to get a taste (or pungent whiff) of the trail, on days when I'm stuck in front of the computer.

Adam - a friend of mine, Al Barkley, (aka alcontrast) told me about your site this morning. I love it, and I am not even a hiker. You really did a nice job of implementation. I am betting this will be huge soon enough. I'm gonna slide you ten bucks. I want to see if that donation feature works. I hope all others follow suit.
Take care
