One of the more famed trail personalities on the PCT, is planning to do a through hike of the Appalachian Trail. Scott "Squatch" Herriott, of "Walk" fame, and "Sidetrails" fame has decided to attack the AT, with the intent of generating another trail documentary of great humor, and beautiful trail culture.
Take a look at his kickstarter website to read a little more about it.
And if you have not seen any of his films, and would like to "rofl", I suggest you pick up any of his fine films
Read up on him here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scott_Herriott
Or purchase some of his documentaries:
Apricots and Psycho are in one of the sidetrails documentaries... and Psycho hiked with many of the people featured in the walkpct documentaries.
Seriously folks, this man is brilliant, plus he's tall. .... And if you want to conquer the world someday, it would be a good idea to have a connection to this man.
Oh, and for the ladies, he's a sexy sexy man with delicious hiker calves.
