So, I'm not sure if this has been posted or not; I just got the email now. It's a Visa credit card through UMB Bank, partnered with the ATC.

"We've partnered with UMB Bank to offer ATC Affinity credit cards that will help us protect and maintain one of the world's longest continuously marked footpaths.
For each new account activated, we'll receive $50, and for each purchase made with the Affinity card, a percentage of sales will be allocated back to us. Funds received will benefit trail management and support, conservation work, community and youth engagement and educational initiatives.

For more information about the program, or to apply for an ATC credit card, visit https://www.cardpartner.com/app/A162B."

I'm not trying to push the card in any way, but check out these pics for the face of the card! https://www.cardpartner.com/app/A162B I'm pretty sure the pics are Katahdin x's2, McAfee Knob, general green tunnel, and a general bald (probably south VA or NC/TN border-Max Patch, maybe?) I read that guys blog before hiking the trail and instantly recognized the shots. I'm pretty sure his trial name was Portrait and he posted on trailjournals. Anyways, if IRC, I think he had a very light setup with a cuben fiber pack, and he managed to carry a full-size DSLR. He had some amazing pics, and his journal was very well written. So, if he sees this, or if anyone is in contact with him, please pass on a kudos!
