Wayne Bailey Talks Trail at PA Show

Carlisle, Pennsylvania's The Sentinel from 5 February 2012 carries an article by Matthew Ciccocioppo headlined "Eastern Sports and Outdoors Show begins Saturday".

The bulk of the article is about a presentation sponsored by the ATC.
The Conservancy has had a presence at the show for several years, but for the first time they offered a "Back Packing 101" seminar, show coordinator Kimberly Williams said. The seminar took place at 5:30 p.m. in the small arena Saturday.

Retired Alabama school teacher, Wayne Bailey is the quintessential instructor, having backpacked nearly 10,000 miles in the last 10 years. Bailey introduced himself saying, "I am not the smartest guy but my hiking techniques have come from experience."
Bailey had about 50 people at his presentation on his 2007 AT thru-hike. He also did the PCT in 2009 and the CDT in 2010
