Congratulations to all the SOBOS (southbounders) who finished the 2176 mile Appalachian Trail hike this season from Mt. Katahdin in Maine to Springer Mountain in Georgia.
This year a group of four girls (known collectively as the Vermont Mafia) made the journey, together. They maintained a blog about their hike, read about it here: http://5millionsteps.wordpress.com/2008/12/19/we-did-it/
