@Philreedshikes Hi Phil.
I appreciate your reply.
I will be posting a new conversation this week about my section-hiking "technique". It did not allow me to get involved with the social part (as you'll see in that post).
Also, I am so focused on hiking and taking pictures/videos, I'd not have time for the part you mentioned.
Speaking of pictures: I will look at your channel. Mine is Ken Brenner. On it, I have a playlist called "Hiking the AT - Ken Brenner". In that, you will see 14 videos showing the trail I've walked and seen from Georgia to Harper's Ferry, WV. I have 8 for Virginia: 1 for Mt. Rogers area, 1 for SW Virginia, 3 for Central VA, 2 for Shenandoah National Park, 1 for northern VA. I'd enjoy your comments regarding what sections of VA you've done and compare notes.
