Appalachian Trail Thru Hike 1985

Perhaps the most enthusiastic thru hiker in the history of the AT, Chuck Wood, trail name "Woodchuck", is from Norristown, PA. His unusual staff was comprised of feathers, a US flag, a crucifix, racoon tails, a north/south symbol on either side, a water jug attached with velcro, and oh yes, an AT he fashioned at the top. He carried this the entire way, although it was a broken and battered at the end judging from the Christmas Card he sent me that year.
