    If she does the CDT again does that mean she gets a Double Triple Crown?

    Uncle Tom, you do such a spectacular job of celebrating fellow hikers, I know it comes back to you in other ways, I just thought you should hear it. err…read it.

      Thanks, Fidget. If Trainwreck ever completes a second CDT, she enters the Double Triple Crown club, and will be the ultimate female rock star. I hope her pic will at least be on a Wheaties package!
