Bruce "Dudley" Watts ... Dudley was to hike the AT in 2020 but Covid killed those plans. So in 2020 and 2021, he remained in Canada and thru-hiked the Rideau Trail, backpacked in Algonquin Park and thru-hiked the GDT (the Canadian extension of the CDT). In 2022 Dudley is finally on the AT. He will be VLOGing his adventure this time on his own YouTube Channel starting in April. :) Dudley is the creator of CAMPOLOGY.ca

My tortured and forbidden love affair with her began in the fall of 1986. At that time I was 27 and she was 49.
