She said the idea for hiking the A.P. as it is known among aficionados

Dang, the trail has been renamed. What's the "P" mean, I wonder? :-?

So much for being a "hiker", "hiker trash", "backpacker" or whatever, you are now an "aficionado".


Appalachian hiker is 65 but quite alive


And it's good to hear she is "quite alive". I hate seeing dead "aficionados" on the "A.P."

hiking the "A.P."?
being in the MEDIA...i've always thought the "A.P." was the Associated Press!
hehehehehehehe:D

hope she doesnt take the name "65ALIVE"...it was taken in 2005...
& HE made it ALL the way to Mt.K.!

Whatever the trail name GOOD LUCK to her...i'm planning to do the same @ retirement @ age 62 (just a few more years)!

Good for her!

She has proven yet again that one's age of more than just a few years does not always have to be "old".

Thanks for posting - I hope the Trail gives her what she's looking for.

Definitely want to meet her!

Anyone else notice that 65 year olds seem to be getting younger every year?
