Retiree Hiker Heading Out on 19 March

The Greensboro (NC) News-Record reports in its 27 February 2007 "Inside Scoop: The Print Version" column that Guilford County, NC's retiring social services director, John Shore, 59, is planning to set out on a thru-hike of the AT on 19 March.

"Shore's hike serves another purpose: raising money for foster children. To contribute, visit"

And his trail name is Griz07. "'There are three explainations (sic) of the name,' Shore writes, '1) my rather rotund shape looks like a bear; 2) at night my snoring sounds like a bear; or, 3) after a week on the trail I smell like a bear.'"

Thanks for the warning about the snoring.
