Adkins and Adkins Hitting the Trail

The 27 February 2007 issue of the Charleston (WV) Daily News has an article by Monica Orosz titled "Notable hiker ready to take the fifth."

She's referring to Leonard Adkins being about to launch off on his 5th hike of the Appalachian Trail with his wife Laurie (on her 4th). The article recounts some of Leonard and Laurie's hiking background, how they met on the Trail, how the vet says that their 13-year-old dog is fit enough to accompany them.

The idea this time is to take it easy, rather than to rush to Katahdin.
