    Excellent, Iím jealous, though happy for you. How long have you been hanging and what advice do you think you might need?

    I see you're in Alabama- Have you done some shakeouts on the Pinhoti? Nimblewill Nomad (Sunny) just completed the Pinhoti + AT at 83 years old. He's the caretaker down at Flagg MT and is always willing to chat. He's hiked all of the National and Scenic trails and didn't start til he retired.
