Dear Fellow Loadstone GPS Users:

January 15, 2010 was the official decision date for whether my plan to hike 
the Appalachian Trail to demonstrate the independence of persons with visual 
impairments and the role of adaptive technology in achieving our 
independence is a go for this year.  After three years of work and some 
frustrating delays, it is a go.  Award-winning videographer Gary L. Steffens 
of Fresh Images Video Productions will film a documentary of this event.

I would like to thank the Loadstone GPS team and members of this list for 
their support and answering my many and probably sometimes uninformed 
questions.  I would also like to thank the Loadstone GPS team for their 
willingness to be listed as a sponsor.  Please visit 
www.hansonatcampaign.com or www.blindhiker.com (accessible to persons with 
visual impairments) to watch a short video and for more information.  You 
will be able to follow the hike on Face Book.  Search for the Hanson 
Appalachian Trail Campaign.

Please let me know if there is anything I can do to publicize Loadstone GPS 
during this hike.  I would not be doing it without this very good, free open 
source program.


Mike Hanson
