"Minnesota Smith is on his second AT thru and is anxious to share the knowledge he acquired on his last hike. He also has some really good ideas on proper nutrition while spending six months in the woods."

Hi, Larry. Just letting you know what I'm up to. I got to Harpers Ferry, and flipped ahead to Cheshire, Mass., to avoid the worst of the summer heat in PA/NJ/NY. The plan is to continue NOBO to Katahdin, then back to Mass, SOBO to finish at Harpers. I'm currently in a hostel in Manchester Center, VT.

I hope you are well. Thank you again for your counsel and hospitality.

Every shelter register I have read this year that has Minnesota Smith has signed, someone has crossed out the Smith part of his name and wrote "Douche". I took a picture of one of them. Apparently he pisses off everyone he meets, and from reading his register entries I see why. Seems like a real jerk...

hmmm sounds very similar to the register entries in '06, i haven't met him either, but one of those '06 register entries written by him was enough for me to never care too....

i think your opinion would change of him once you have met him.....but then again you and yukon could be one of those types that just take sombodies opinion of someone as face value never knowing if what is said is fact or fiction..............just because someone writes a thing about something or the other yesterday is not fact in their thinking today, people change as the winds change directions......

no my opinion won't change, and this is not taking someone elses opinion, this is my own opinion that i formed from my own eyes reading words that he wrote and signed his name to, I have too much respect for Trail Maintainers to ever change my opinion of him.

smith has an impairment, that much is clear, not much different than a hearing or sight impairment. don't mean you need to take him on as a best bud, but maybe understand he can't see things others see

smith has an impairment, that much is clear, not much different than a hearing or sight impairment. Bingo. The difference being that hearing and sight impairments are correctable.

TOW
2009-08-09, 23:45
Well we all have some kind of impairments, that is life. And if we can look at ourselves and know that then we ought to be able to, in time, accept those who have impairments that we consider a bit more strange than our own.....

MS needs friends, and he wants friends. And that is what I am going to be to him even though I am impaired as well.........

I like him because he talks down about all of the trash and litter on the Pinholti trail and then hides sardine cans behind a fallen tree at the shelter just south of Sams Gap, I-26.

I think that's cool.

So he made it to NH and he jumped north and he still dropped out? Wow, thats the best part of the trail.

So in terms of meeting MS, met him when he passed through at Overmountain. He was interesting. Did talk alot and talked about being shunned on that other site. He is knowledgeable and was a nice guy but had a very odd demeanor about him.
