    Default Appalachian hiker is 65 but quite alive - Aspen Times

    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."

    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".
