I met this father & son team at Pine Ellis Hiker Hostel. They have been section hiking the whole trail a month a year for the last 5 years. They will finish the whole trail this year wrapping up at Katadihn.
They are lots of fun to hang out with. We had such a great time laughing and joking with them. Rob is about the closest guy to my age I have met, a former computer programmer and current IT manager so we have a lot in common and got along pretty well.
