Annotation Every year, a couple thousand would-be "thruhikers" set out to walk the entire 2,000-mile length Georgia- to Maine Appalachian Trail. About one of every 10 actually makes it. Robert Rubin's chances did not look good. Thirty-eight years old, dispirited, and burned out, he dreamed of leaving mortgage, wife, and cul-de-sac life behind for a journey that would take half a year-- or might never end. What awaited Rubin was not the solo trek he'd imagined, but a strange vagrant culture of pilgrims and dropouts with its own rules and rituals."
