I received a note from Laurie Potteiger, Information Services Manager for the ATC with a message from hikers at this years "Gathering" saying thanks to the crew for their hard work in protecting the AT. In addition to the signed card above, Laurie included some kind words from a hiker.
“I owe a big, giant, super duper thank you … to the volunteers who keep the trail alive and continue to make it what it is.” -- Anthony Magee, ”Chili Pepper” 2007-2008
So, give yourself a big pat on the back and know your work does matter a lot to hikers on the AT!

It's with deep regret that we see the passing of fellow Konnarock Crew Volunteer and friend, Larry "Sugar Bear" Regan (1946-2008). Sugar Bear started Volunteering on the AT in 2007 and worked 5 weeks last season on Konnarock. Although his time on crew was short, his calm but fun loving demeanor was infectious.
Always quick to give a helping hand to anyone who needed it, Sugar Bear embodied the best of what Konnarock is about, a cooperative, friendly spirit to get anything done.
We'll miss you Sugar Bear,
