Date and place of
On September 6-8, 2002, we had a fantastic
25-year reunion of 1977
Pacific Crest Trail hikers at Castle Crags State Park. I'll get more pictures
and reports posted soon. In the meantime, here's one to prove that 21
hikers showed up:
||Left: We can't say where the PCT
shields came from due to an ongoing investigation.
We've managed to try to track
down quite a few 1977 hikers; the Hiker List
what we know so far. If you hiked a significant portion of the PCT in 1977 (or
you know someone who did), please contact me.
We've also set up a discussion group and mailing list to discuss the reunion and
old times. If

Mini-Reunion at ADZPCTKO
At the Annual Day Zero Pacific Crest Trail Kick Off (ADZPCTKO)
gathering near the Mexican border in late April, nine '77 hikers showed
up. Back row: Pennsylvania Jeff Zimmerman, Kelty Kid Carl
Siechert, San Diego Trucker Mark Dobransky, Kelty Kids Bill Berg and
Norm Switzer, and Greg "Strider" Hummel (a cofounder of
ADZPCTKO); kneeling: Mad Monte Dodge, Paul Hacker; missing:
San Diego Trucker Marty McCormick, who skipped out before we got around
to taking pictures.
I've moved the mystery photos to their own
page. See if you can identify any of these people.
Not a day goes by that I don't think about that
fantastic trip we took back in 1977. I look forward to running into you folks again--at the reunion or on the
trail--and swapping stories. Boy, we've got a lot of 'em!
