Jamie: My wife Siusan hikes the Appalachian Trail solo and has completed Georgia to New Jersey so far. This summer I am taking her to Delaware Gap and she will hike New Jersey, New York and Conn. If there is any gatherings in that area around mid July let me know by e-mail as we would love to attend. She should be off the trail by then and waithing for me to pick her up. However if I am lucky enought to be retired by then I may stay along the traqil area in my Casita
and meet up with her once a week. If that is the case I am going to have to get advice as to where to camp close to the trail. We have never been to that area so it's all new territory to us but have heard it is beautiful.
