Billy Goats Ever Lasting Smile
26-AUG-2007 Monte Dodge

Billy Goat's Ever Lasting Smile

Stevens Pass, Washington.

He has hiked over 30,000 miles on his combined " Thru-hikes" of the PCT, AT and CDT. Nothing ever gets to him and he rolls up the miles and takes the trail, weather and hikers as they come. Not many folks have 5 Pacific Crest Trail Hikes Under their belt and at 68 years old , he plans on doing several more. I asked him what his goals were and he said, " Well, when I'm 75 years old, I would like to do another AT hike. BG climbed Mount Katadin in 1957, one year before I was born..... And Yes , have you ever seen the " Burt's Bees" products. Billy Goat could be a " Model" for their packaging......... ( Or A Backup For ZZ Top )
