    StormCrow's AT Thru Hike

    Not sure how many are following Stormcrow's blog about his AT Thru Hike but I was amazed at today's entry - worth a read at:

    Campsite 50 - Off Trail

    acts of kindness like this are what make the Hiker Community and this forum so great - well played Stormcrow!
    see you on the trail,
    Mike

    Adam is a true ambassador of our community and the human race. The two he helped out were very lucky he came along. His story made me smile.

    This is the best outdoor-related forum on the web and stories like this and people like Adam are why.

    Yes it was truly amazing, but whats even more amazing is that he is that way all the time! In business and personal he is such a kind and caring person, willing to go the extra for others.

    He is an inspiration!

    Once again, I must quote my wife who attended her 1st group hang this year and remarked afterward, "I get it now. It's not about hammocks, it's about the people!"

    Amazed while reading that blog entry. And, have to agree with your wife Mad777. Well played Adam.

    Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
    The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy,
    while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn."

    Yea; If it was just the hammocks, I got all I need, can hang it in the back yard anytime, & am only a 45 minute drive to a state park. I come here & go to hangs to meet Adam & Fin & etc.
    Usually also a good reason to hike the AT; the views are great, the hiking too is good, but it's the people you remember.
    When you have a backpack on, no matter where you are, you’re home.
    PAIN is INEVITABLE. MISERY is OPTIONAL.
