    Default T- Shirts

    Hey Top ...are these like shirts they used to sell at the pizza place in Damascus. I got one in 2000 but it's a "Blue Blaze" and says "Hiker Trash" on it.
    Just curious ...
    The more I learn ...the more I realize I don't know.

    We never set on an official design 100%, but the last good idea was two shirts.

    #1 for hiking. A green coolmax shirt with the logo on the left sleve. Something like "I [] WHITEBLAZE.net"

    #2 for town. A green cotton shirt with the same logo, only on the front.

    There wers some designs put forth like these:

    Yeah, I can just see me wearing a shirt saying "I follow the White Ones" in Camden, NJ. In the few short seconds I have before being jumped, I'm sure they would completely understand that it's just a trail thing.

    Baltimore Jack has those, as well as the one about two trails in the woods. I want one of those.

    T-Shirts will be available at Trail Days in Damascus, and eventually thru the mail. The original White Blaze T-Shirt, with the modified Robert Frost quote ("Two paths diverged in the woods. I took the one with white blazes. And that made all the difference") will be available in various colors and sizes; we're working on a few others; we may have prototypes at the PA Hiker Ruck in Pine Grove Furnace Park this weekend. We may also be at the Trailfest weekend in Hot Springs. We'll absolutely be at Trail Days and the ALDHA Gathering in October in Hanover.

    The Bill Bryson shirt is kinda on hold, depending on what sort of feedback we get. Right now, there's one of them, and it's mine. If there's sufficient interest, we'll make more.

    Will keep folks who are interested in this informed as I know more about models and availability.

    Default ALDHA Gathering

    ALDHA is the Appalachian Long-Distance Hiker's Association, the only national group devoted to long-distance backpacking.

    They hold an annual get-together every October called "The Gathering". It's always at a different place on or very near the A.T.; this year it'll be in Hanover NH in October.

    The Gathering consists of dozens of lectures, slide shows, workshops, discussion groups, on all sorts of things, all concerning long-distance hiking. They always hold the event at a college campus so we have access to auditoriums, projectors, audio-visual things, etc. There are usually hundreds of folks in attendance, many of whom are previous long-distance hikers; many are thinking about it. I attended one of these in 1994 before my first long hike and found it very helpful and a lot of fun. I've attended every one since except for 1996.

    Anyone can attend, tho membership is very strongly suggested; attendance at a Gathering is about 17 bucks, which covers admission to any and all events/lectures, etc., this also incluses tentsites for the weekend which are always very nice. This also includes your annual dues to ALDHA, so you'll get newsletters and a very comprehensive directory of other long-distance hikers. This includes a state-by-state list of folks willing to correspond, meet with, or otherwise assist prospective hikers, meaning, if you live in Iowa or Wisconsin or some other outta the way place, and you want to know if there are any former thru-hikers nearby, ALDHA is the place to go to find out.

    Anyway, it's a great organization, and the Gathering is a great event. Anyone interested in more information should check out www.aldha.org

    Thanks Hammock Hanger....your endorsement makes me feel even better about going. (I'm sort of shy about groups of people.) I'd love to go for the info and as an added bonus it might even help convince my husband.
    Thanks

    I just talked to a guy that could embroider the stuff on the shoulder for an on-order system instead of a silk or heat transfer process. It wouldn't be a bulk thing, but it is a way to make them for members intersted. Does this sound interesting?

    Yes, it sounds interesting. I would hate for you to get stuck with a large number of t-shirts. Is this something that could be ordered on an as need basis?

    And, are you referring to the Whiteblaze t-shirts because I don't want to infringe on anyone else's prototype.

    Yes I'm talking whiteblaze shirts, although I really really want to get one of Baltimore Jack's shirts about the two trails and add a whiteblaze logo for myself.

    The thing I have to do is get coolmax in bulk and the right color so I can take them in there and get them done as needed. I figure the price would end up being about $5 for the embroidering, $4 for shipping, $10 for the shirt, and $5 for the donation, or about $24 for a shirt if I went one shirt at a time. Pretty darn pricey for a t-shirt.

    As a teenager in 1991 I was buying Led Zeppelin shirts for 13 dollars, they now cost over 30. 24 bucks would not be so bad for a t-shirt, especially if it's coolmax

    Default Sargent-

    tell me where to and to whom to mail the check for 24$

    Sgt Rock...

    $24 for a Cool Max T-Shirt is actually a very cheap price, knowing that $5 will go to help support this site!!!

    (As a comparison the Appalachian Money Club charges $28 for their LS Cool Max's and MOST of that goes to support hotel expansion.)

    Just my 2 cents!!
