The Appalachian Trail

"I've hiked in Western North Carolina for years with my three boys- they all like the outdoors. For six years now, my boys and I and several of our friends hike around seventy miles of the Appalachian Trail. We spend a week hiking and camping, and we carry everything we need on our backs. We find and purify our water, and prepare or find our food. One of my city-slicker friends told me to be sure and pack a Visa card, but if I did, there would be no place to use it!"
