Longtrail 100 BlogBy Steve Zind
Hi,I have tons of stories from the Long Trail. I hiked End-to-End while in college. Living in Boston&NY at the time meant I did a lot of bus rides and hitch hiking around the state to get to&from trail heads to complete the trip. This led me to fall in love with VT, and I ended up moving here 5 years ago. Now my wife and I mostly ski on the Long Trail. Though we do get out in summer time too: http://www.mountainmurmur.com/2009/07/07/happy-4th-from-vt/
VPR is marking the 100th anniversary of The Long Trail with a month-long series of reports and essays. Through this series, we'll explore the history and future of The Long Trail and introduce listeners to the people who built, maintain and hike it today.
