The Appalachian Trail's annual membership drive is well along the trail to sign up 2,180 new members for 2013.
Even people as cheap as I am sign up -- if only for the discounts members receive on stuff at the ATC Store.
Everyone (yes, everyone) will agree that 2013 has been a stinko year and we're not gonna take it anymore! Forget about 2013 and buy any one of a half-dozen gorgeous ATC calendars from way better years that have come and gone. What better way could there possibly be to live in the past?
Still not convinced? Ha! These brand-new calendars are at clearance prices!
Has the management of the ATC gone mad??? Probably.
So, hurry and snatch up these old calendars before 2013 drives you as insane as it's made the folks at the ATC Store!!!
But I digress ....
The ATC's membership drive is coming to a town within a few day's travel of almost everyone in America!! That's right!!
These fabulous events -- complete with a dandy assortment of cuties and hotties -- will feature several guest speakers, including authors, volunteers, key members of the AT community and 2,000-milers. You might actually meet and greet:
"The Appalachian Trail Conservancy is excited to host this membership drive as it offers an unique opportunity to connect the community with this American icon - the Appalachian Trail," said Javier Folgar, director of marketing and communications at the ATC. "It offers participants a chance to hear first-hand the stories of the people who volunteer, maintain, hike, and protect the Trail."
You don't have to become a member of ATC, but remember ... we know where you hike.
