Lint is an amazing character. Always manages to show up at just the right moment on the trail.
He has a tattoo of every trail he has hiked on his body.
I am talking picto-graphic map representations of trails!
Then there is this big red Monkey Wrench Tatoo on his leg.
I asked him why the wrench?
He said; "That? It's just a wrench".
Here is a picture of Lint (left), Pi, and Miss Information from the PCT in 2009.
The thing i like about Lint is that he uses his trail knowledge to both help other hikers and confront hikers that are doing bad things or setting a bad example.
Lint reminds hikers that our trail Karma is tied to everyone elses.
What hikers do in town directly effects those that follow.
With a new "crop" of hikers every year, it is good to have veteran hikers like Lint around to set an example.
Lint is a stand up guy and a great trail ambassador.
