Friday Film: "Flying Lifeboat" Coast Guard SAR Helicopter


  1. Mark, did your recent vacation include hiking part of the AT? I heard you mention GA as a starting point and wondered. v/r

  2. Yes, started at Harpers Ferry, WV, and hiked to Boiling Springs, PA. Strained an Achilles tendon, so came off the AT to recover. Will do some long section hikes until I finish the whole thing, starting after my leg heals.

  3. Outstanding- good for you. I've done about 400 miles from Springer Mountain to Shenandoah Valley, doing sections. Backpacking the AT is an extraordinary adventure that provides lifelong memories- nothing like it. Good luck on your future backpacking.
