    Snakebreaks has the wrong date. Can’t be October 30.

    Ramp Tramps are missing a name. Someone want to remain anonymous?

    I love looking at the finishers. Congratulations to all.

      For the RampTramps, one of us in the picture tapped out back in Massachusetts, but joined us for the Katahdin summit. He doesn’t consider himself a thru-hiker.

    Congratulations to all of you. Your efforts have brought many memories back to this 80 year old! The AT experience is magical despite the hardships, and the friends are for a lifetime.
