The first person to ever thru hike the AT

So, I have been doing some research and I have much to tell you all... that will begin soon after this post. In my searching though I found this very cool site about Ed Schaffer and the first thru hike on the Appalachian Trail, with pictures and tales. It even explains how he toughened his feet for the hike, who knew that trick is what I want to know? Check it out below:
