Andy Falender Retiring at AMC

The Boston Globe Magazine for 8 January 2012 has an brief interview by Doug Most with the retiring head of the Appalachian Mountain Club headlined "Andy Falender steps down from Appalachian Mountain Club: After 23 years, he reflects on his proudest achievements, biggest regrets, and favorite hikes and huts."

One Q & A:
Have you ever hiked the entire Appalachian Trail? No. This is what happens when you grow up in Indiana; you don’t have the chance to check off these parcels. I’ve done lots of sections of it. I don’t think I saw a mountain till I was 18.
Yeah. I was in Indiana for a couple years. No mountains where I was.
