Soooo, I've read about her and heard about her for years. No, really decades. The grandmother, who at age 67 set out with a denim gunny sack she made herself and walking in Kids sneakers, did the Appalachian Trail. She was a legend when I was ding the ultra light backpacking up and down the A.T. in the 1960's and up to the mid 1980's. Every backpacker knows about her. But I was at the library yesterday, (Doing a lot of reading in Covid era) and while growing the biographies, I saw it. The tittle "Grandma Gatewoods Walk." No sooner I started to read, and there in middle of page 2 was the gear she carried that was all of 12 pounds. By todays standard, she was woefully under equipped to the point of dangerous. Some Vienna sausage, raisins, peanuts, bullion cubes, powdered milk, water bottle, candy mints, Some bandaids, a shower curtain to keep rain off, and a warm coat. There was a flahslight (no mention of type) and a Swiss Army Knife. Unfortunately no mention model or size. Darn it! So, in addition to Charles Lindberg, Chuck Yeager, Peter Hathaway Capstick, we can add the name of a grandmother from an Ohio farm community to the list. And this was 1955 when she made the first of her through hikes.
