Former AT Hiker at Northern End of PCT

"One man's challenge" is the title of the Roy Gault article in the 23 August 2007 issue of the Salem (OR) Statesman Journal. It's about a Pacific Crest Trail hiker named Dave Mueller who
"has hiked the entire Appalachian Trail during summers past and is en route from the Oregon-California border to High Bridge, Wash., just short of the United States-Canada line."
It doesn't say just when Mueller hiked the Appalachian Trail. But it does have a number of his comparisons of the AT to the PCT. For example,
"It's like pretty women. They're all different, but they're all pretty for their own reasons."
Mueller, from Florida, doesn't carry a stove while backpacking. He says he's been known to subsist on snacks for 10 days at a time, while traveling between towns. He's leading the pack of this year's northbound PCT hikers.
