Of all the trails I've hiked, the Long Trail is the one I like to return to again and again. First AT section hike 35 years ago was in VT. Finished section hiking the LT in '81. Hiked several more times subsequently, including a 25 year commemoration in '02 with my hiking partner from the early days. Thruhiked it in '07 and I'd like - no, expect - to thruhike it again despite all the other trails out there that beckon me.
