Pete Gomer, known as Dharma on the trail, came into the Magic City Morning Star & Hard Drive Cafe on Saturday, September 11, 2004, after completing a northbound thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail.

When not on the trail, he is from Ellington, Connecticut.

Dharma began his hike on February 24, 2004, arriving on Mount Katahdin on September 11, 2004, after six months and twelve days on the trail. This was his first AT thru-hike, and he's not sure if he'll do it again.

His favorite part of the journey was the Grayson Highlands in Virginia, the least favorite being the part of the trail that led through Pennsylvania.

He leaves us with the following suggestions in order that the town of Millinocket might be more friendly to thru-hikers.

"Make it easy to find the things we need," he said; in particular, such things as the library, Internet access, restaurants, candy, ice cream, pay phones, etc. "It took me awhile to find candy," he added.

Also, he suggested that it would be nice if we could have the locations of some of these things on a map, with copies in the AT Lodge and at our store.

Thanks for the feedback. We are working on just such a guide.
