Hiker Fugate Profiled in New York

The Glens Falls, NY Post Star of 16 August 2007 has an article by Alyson Martin titled "Taking it to the streets; Message on the Move" in which she profiles cross country walker Steve Fugate. He was in the midst of a thru-hike in 1999 when he learned of his son's suicide. He's pretty much been walking since, carrying a sign with the simple message "Love Life" as a way to keep others from committing suicide.

He did, by the way, eventually complete his A.T. hike.

Take my advice, too, and read his Appalachian Trail story at his web site.
