    Well then, if he's like Lone Wolf hiking to Dots dedicated then he's got my attention.

    Although he may be the oldest next year, older people have thru-hiked and finished. Earl had the record at 79 but I think some guy beat him recently.

    EZ1, from near Cashiers, NC, hiked in 2004 and completed his 3rd (?) thru-hike of the trail. He was 81 at the time, beating Earl's record.
    The only thing better than mountains, is mountains where you haven't been.

    Yeah, that's the guy. Never mind hiking the trail, just living that long is a feat .
