The first official Cold Splinters column on New York Times’ The Moment is now live and ready for your viewing pleasure. (The Peters Mountain Works thang didn’t count.) The bi-weekly column, titled “The Campster” starts off with a trip taken a few weeks back to Dartmouth Country in New Hampshire’s White Mountains. We’re really excited about this project in these parts, so if you’ve got a couple of minutes, head on over to The Moment and read it, then check back in two weeks for the next installment. More to come…

    Great blog, great write-up. One minor thing … the AT train station is not the only train station on the trail. Harpers Ferry, WV has three daily trains to and from Washington DC via both MARC and Amtrak. It’s not explicitly an AT station, but it’s only about 100m from the trail through town. It’s probably not used by many DCers to hit the trail, but, it could be. Might be fun some time to AT section hike from Pennsylvania to Connecticut on weekends entirely via transit (Martz Bus, buses in NJ, trains to Harriman, Manitou, AT and Wingdale).
