Appalachian Trail Stories, Web site review by Leif Utne
For a creative twist on the outdoor odyssey genre, check out The site is the virtual campfire of hiker and author Tim 'Paddler' Hewitt, who invites other 'thru-hikers' (hikers who walk the trail's entire length from Georgia to Maine) to sit for a spell and share their adventures. Ultimately, Hewitt hopes to publish a series of books 'containing the experiences of hikers on the AT -- both section hikers and thru hikers -- that will capture the imagination of future generations of outdoor enthusiasts; who ultimately will be responsible to see that our natural resources -- like the Appalachian Trail -- are preserved for generations to come.'
