    Jack was one of the more interesting hikers out there, I got to drink with him for 2 hours in Damascus in 2008, it was nice to meet the man behind the legend. We're all mortal, it sucks.

    He was a good dude, I met him a few times in the years after my thru, saw him in Franklin 6 days before he died, we were talking about medical stuff, and I urged him to go to the hospital. But, he didn't. I was doing a section hike, springer to fontana, that year, and found out after I got back.

    He was one of the few people who actually managed to break the chains of society and materialism. He wasn't perfect, was pretty obvious he had alcohol problems, but to do what he did was a lot of people's dreams. I'll be doing it myself in a couple years, though I am financially secure.

    I'm a combat vet, so it comes with the territory, been struggling with it for years, down to a 12 pack a week, once a week, so not that bad. Not an alcoholic, but it can be a problem from time to time.
