re: Long Distance Hiking Class

I was able to attend the Tuesday session of Michael O'Brien's  Ultralight Backpacking class.    It was very interesting and he had a lot of stories from 2009 ICT and from his "Around Idaho" perimeter hike last year.    The slide show had a lot of great pictures and it was fun to remember places I have been along the trail.    He is having the second half of the class tonight Thursday 1/30  @ 6:30 pm  @ West Junior High.     one of the slides that he showed was meeting Marcia Powers, who thru hiked with her husband Ken in 2009, then solo hiked southbound for about half the ICT.     I like to try to make sure we get the names of ICT completers on this blog, since it's still fairly new and a rare accomplishment.  

so Michael O'Brien   Class of 2009.    Well done!    that was a big year for the ICT.
 Ken and Marcia Powers, my friend Jerry Finnegan, Bart Robinson, and Michael 0'Brien.

any others out there that I missed from 2009?

Ron   (Class of 2011)
